Dear SHAKSPEReans,
 
I am taking the plunge and putting together a proposal for some fieldwork in
the UK later this year.  Most of the information I need to plan and prepare for
the trip is readily available, of course, but I was hoping to get some info off
the net that might facilitate things. So, can anyone help me with some
addresses?  I'm trying to find the e-mail addresses (if they have such) of
people at the Bodleian and British Libraries who might be able to help me find
out about conditions and facilities for visiting researchers.  Likewise, if any
of this info is available off fileservers (especially since the most recent
info I have been able to get otherwise is two years old) I would appreciate
knowing where to get it from.  I have done a little net-surfing but didn't come
up with anything. This will be my first such excursion; I'm hoping to spend at
least six weeks going through pamphlet and manuscript material, trying to put
together some idea of the perceptions of manhood in Elizabethan England other
than those provided by the likes of Elyot, Ascham and the other better-known or
'mainstream' writers.  Any assistance that can be provided would be greatly
apreciated!

PS: Any advance notice about conferences, seminars, or performances of
plays in southern England around September-October would also be great!

Dear Hardy and interested SHAKSPERians,
 
If material submitted to SHAKSPER has been published electronically may one
submit the same material to a journal?  Since journals do not publish already
published material will they not reject any articles that have previously been
sent to an electronic discussion group.  How do journals react to such invasion
of their monopoly on what they publish?
 
Yours ever,
BEN SCHNEIDER

[Dear Ben and Interested Others,
 
Although I consider our daily digests scholarly discourse that may with
permission be cited in scholarly writings and documented by volume and
digest number, I do not consider essays available on the SHAKSPER Fileserver
as published.  Here are my reasons.
 
First, the SHAKSPER Fileserver is a service for the members of the conference;
it does not in any way purport to be an electronic journal and can only be
accessed by members of the conference.
 
Second, the SHAKSPER Fileserver makes available essays of three general
categories.
 
        1) Electronic reprints of published essays,
        2) Early drafts of papers that eventually may be published (such as
           SAA Conference papers), and
        3) Papers that will probably never be published but that may still
           be of interest to the members.
 
I'm not sure if the above covers all papers that are retrievable, but I do not
see in category two any conflict with eventual print publication. We do
distribute early drafts of our work at conferences like the MLA and SAA and we
often read them at others institutions.  We do this, of course, for feedback.
It seems to me that papers available to SHAKSPERean on the Fileserver that are
not yet published are placed there in that spirit.
 
I welcome anyone else's response to Ben's question but thought I would go
ahead a state my understanding.
