Seventh World Shakespeare Congress
Valencia, Spain, 18 to 23 April 2001

The ISA has been involved in the organisation of five Shakespeare
congresses since its foundation in 1974: in Washington DC (1976),
Stratford-upon-Avon (1981), Berlin (1986), Tokyo (1991) and Los Angeles
(1996). The next will take place in  Spain in cooperation with the
Fundacion Shakespeare de Espana under the direction of Professor Manuel
Conejero. The theme of the conference will be 'Shakespeare and the
Mediterranean'.

Participation in the World Shakespeare Congress is open to anyone with a
genuine interest in Shakespeare who is a member of the ISA or one of the
national Shakespeare Associations which is a corporate member of the
ISA. As well as a programme of seminars, the Congress will offer plenary
papers by speakers from a wide range of countries, backgrounds and
interests, from academic professionals to those who have engaged with
Shakespeare from literary or theatrical viewpoints.

Seminar information and a call for papers will be sent out to ISA
members and affiliated societies in January 2000 and registration will
be invited in January 2001.

Membership of the International Shakespeare Association is open to any
person who wishes to support its objectives and accepts its articles.
Corporate membership is open to any organization or institution which
has interests in common with the work of the Association. Members
receive copies of the annual newsletter, occasional papers as they are
published, and may purchase the World Congress proceedings at a special
rate.
