 > asks: 'Can anyone provide me
with information regarding conferences on Shakespeare and related matters
held in either France or England during the next month?'
 
Next month, in Tours, Universite Francois Rabelais, a conference on Julius
Caesar, 24-26 November. The play happens to be on the syllabus for the
competitive exams (4th or 5th year students) for future secondary school
teachers of English. Most papers will certainly be in French, I'm afraid,
though the students will be expected to compose in English. This kind of
conference gathers most French Shakespearian scholars, at least those who teach
the play in their departments. It is not attended by the students but by those
who prepare them to their exams.
 
        Contact:
        Michel Bitot,
        4, allee des Cedres
        La Marbelliere
        37300 JOUE LES TOURS (France)
 
This is his personal address: I don't have the department's address at home.
Don't hesitate to write to him. The first day of the conference must be a
Thursday, which means that the papers will begin in the afternoon. It may take
place at the Centre d'Etudes Superieures de la Renaissance in the old town. It
is a very pretty old town, and I recommend the visit to anyone travelling in
the Loire area.
 
One more word (a personal obsession as some may know): very nice wines...
 
On related matters, though slightly later, the society for Anglo-american
17th-18th century studies holds its congress in Paris, Universite Sorbonne
Nouvelle, Institut du monde anglophone, rue de l'Ecole de Medecine, 75006
Paris. The theme is: 'Literature and the Sister Arts'. It is on the same week
end as the JC conference, 25-26 November. The papers will mostly deal with 18th
century artists, which is a totally different field if you are a Shakespeare
addict or Elizabethan scholar.

performance.
 
The committee will review abstracts or, preferably, full papers (c. 10 pages,
