Call For Papers

Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference
November 13-14, 1998

Susquehanna University
Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania

We invite you to send students from a Shakespeare / Renaissance Drama /
Early Modern Literature class to participate in the Fourth Annual
Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference to be held at Susquehanna
University in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania on November 14 and 15, 1998.

This conference seeks performances, film sessions, workshop discussions,
interactive presentations and papers concerning race and gender issues
in Shakespeare.  Special consideration will be given to work on Titus
Andronicus, Othello, Richard III, The Tempest, Twelfth Night, A
Midsummer Night's Dream, and Shakespeare's sonnets.  The conference will
include special sessions on Shakespeare and Film, Shakespeare in
Performance, workshops on Othello and Shakespeare's sonnets, and
traditional sessions where papers will be presented.

Designed to foster scholarship at the undergraduate level, this
conference provides a forum where undergraduates may discuss, share
ideas, and present research with excitement, confidence and fluency, and
encourages connections between people interested in Shakespeare.

Abstracts of papers, performances, film sessions, and performance
sessions are due Friday, October 30, 1998.  Papers should be about 7-9
pages long (reading time about 15 minutes). Those interested in joining
a workshop should also submit abstracts highlighting points for a 3-5
minute presentation they will deliver as part of the workshop itself.

The conference will start at 2:00, Friday, November 13, 1998, and
sessions will continue through Saturday afternoon. Please announce the
conference to your students and join us in November.

Susquehanna University is covering the cost of registration for all
participants.  Selinsgrove offers inexpensive accommodations, and room
subsidies are available.
