Just read the posting from Bruce Fenton requesting information  on the Ohio
Shakespeare Conference.  It's at Ohio State from May 16-18, 1997 and, since I
already deleted the posting, I have limited extra information to offer.
However, the posting can be found at http://www.english.upenn.edu/CFP.

        Hope this helps--
                                J. Swartz

Comment:        SHK 7.0957  Qs: Conferences and

Bruce Fenton asks about the Ohio Shakespeare Conference.  It will meet in
Columbus 16-18 May; the topic is "Textual Practice and Textual Labor:
Shakespeare and his Contemporaries," and the plenary speakers will be Stephen
Orgel, Leah Marcus, Jeff Masten, and Douglas Bruster.  The folks at Ohio State
are accepting papers and abstacts until 20 December: send them to Luke Wilson
or Chris Highley.  OSC is always lively, and intimate enough for lots of
face-to-face exchanges around the coffee urn or in the bar.

As for festivals, you get the most Shakespeare at the Oregon Shakespeare
Festival in Ashland.  The Stratford Shakespeare Festivel maintains its high
quality, but belies its name by devoting only about a third of its program to
its namesake's work.  I hear good reports about the Alabama Shakespeare
Festival in Montgomery.

Festively,
Dave Evett
