Subject:        Call for papers
 
My colleage, Laurence Wright, has asked me to post the following:
 
----------------------------------------------------------------
SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY OF SOUTHERN AFRICA
THIRD TRIENNIAL CONGRESS
Grahamstown, South Africa
7-9 July 1994
part of the National Festival of the Arts
 
CALL FOR PAPERS
 
Proposals are invited for papers on the theme
SHAKESPEARE ACROSS CULTURES
 
The theme should be interpreted very broadly, and could include such
topics as cultural modalities in Shakespeare; Shakespeare and Gender;
the appropriation of Shakespeare in different cultures; democratising
Shakespeare; Shakespeare's values.
 
Proposals and further enquiries should be sent to:
Professor Laurence Wright,
c/o Institute for the Study of English in Africa,
Rhodes University,
Grahamstown, 6140,
South Africa.
 
FAX: [27] [461] 25642
E-mail:

The closing date for the receipt of proposals is 10 December 1993.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Apart from providing an opportunity for visiting one of the most
interesting African countries at one of the most interesting times in
its history, the co-incidence of the Congress with the National Festival
of the Arts (second only to the Edinburgh Festival in size and variety)
would allow participants two weeks to savour the rich cultural diversity
of this country.  At the present rate of exchange South Africa is a
tourist bargain, so you could think of taking in a game park as well as
the Huguenot winelands of the Cape (Francis Drake's "fairest cape in the
whole circumnavigation of the world").  Some of the best wines go for
less than $6 a bottle.  Top-grade hotel accommodation is often less than
$50 per person per night; B&B is much cheaper.
