The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 10.1994 Tuesday, 16 November 1999.
Date: Monday, 15 Nov 1999 17:41:52 +0200
Subject: Invitation: Renaissance 2000
I would like to invite you to attend and to contribute a paper to the
Triennial Congress of the Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa
entitled Renaissance 2000.
The event will provide delegates with an opportunity of re-examining the
renaissance and the literary and theatrical relations among Shakespeare
and his contemporaries.
The conference will take place from Monday evening 26 June to Wednesday
afternoon 28 June 2000. The guest speakers include Jonathan Bate
(Liverpool), Meredith Skura (Rice) and Thomas Docherty
Please note that the National Arts Festival, held in Grahamstown, will
begin the day after the conference ends. It will include the launch of
WordFest 2000, a new national festival of language and literature. This
could be of particular interest to some delegates.

Our local travel agent informs us that a stay in South Africa of eight
days more than halves the airfare. Secondly, Rhodes University and KLM
have negotiated a discounted travel scheme. Should you require further
information about travel and touring, please contact Marian Lanham at:
Should you have any queries do not hesitate to contact me.
PS While strenuous attempts have been made to contact those who work in
this field it has not been possible to obtain full coverage. It would
thus be appreciated if you would forward this email to others who might
find the conference or the events that follow it of value. Thank you.
