Call for Papers

Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference: Cultural Performances

Susquehanna University invites you to send students from a Shakespeare/
Renaissance Drama / Early Modern Literature class to participate in the
Third Annual Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference to be held in
Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania  (about 50 miles north of Harrisburg) on
November 21 and 22.

Papers, workshop discussions and performances dealing with Romeo and
Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, The Merchant of
Venice, Othello, King Lear, and Richard III would be especially
welcome.  We solicit papers dealing with all aspects of these plays,
though the main focus of the conference is on live performances
(including opera) and films based on Shakespeare's plays. Papers should
be about 7-9 pages long (reading time about 15-20 minutes), and should
preferably have an interesting or original take on either the plays
themselves or the performances. Detailed abstracts of papers will be due
by November 7.

It is understood that the papers and performances will be largely works
in progress. Our main purpose for the conference is to create a greater
awareness of the seriousness of all intellectual enterprises. We also
hope to establish a community of undergraduate students who are able to
converse about academic subjects with increasing excitement, confidence,
and fluency. In past years, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in the
students' willingness to take themselves and their work seriously as a
consequence of the conference.

The conference will begin at 2:00 on Friday afternoon, and will include
a plenary speaker and some brief live performances by the Theater and
Music departments at Susquehanna University on Friday evening. On
Saturday, we hope to schedule both regular presentation sessions as well
as workshops on individual plays. Workshops will require about 5 minutes
of prepared materials by each participant. We will conclude with a
post-conference party early Saturday evening, though participants could
leave around 4:00 on Saturday.

Please announce the conference to your students. For further
information, contact
