The First British Graduate Shakespeare Conference

At The Shakespeare Institute, Church Street,
Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6HP, UK
The Shakespeare Institute is hosting the First British Graduate
Shakespeare Conference from 23-25 June 1999. The conference is intended
to give an opportunity for graduate students from British and Irish
universities to meet together to discuss their work. All graduate
students are invited to give 20-minute papers at the conference. There
will be none of the usual predictable plenary lectures from established
academics. Instead there will be sessions with actors in the productions
in the Royal Shakespeare Company's repertory and panel discussions about
academic research and career opportunities.
The scope of the conference will be Shakespeare's work and the work of
his contemporary dramatists. Any student taking a post-graduate course
of any kind at a British or Irish institution is welcome to register.
Conference Registration fee: stlg20 (covering the opening reception and
lunches but not accommodation or theatre tickets)
