April 14-15, 2000

Papers, workshops, interactive presentations, film analyses, and
performances that explore the position of women within the plays and
within early modern England are especially welcome. Special
consideration will be given to work on Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of
the Shrew, Much Ado About Nothing, Troilus and Cressida, Othello,
Macbeth, Richard III and A Winter's Tale.
* Shakespeare in Performance
* Shakespeare and Film
* Workshops on Individual Plays
* Traditional Paper Sessions
Designed to foster scholarship at the undergraduate level, this
conference provides a forum where undergraduates may exchange ideas,
creatively rework texts, and present research in a semi-formal setting.
Papers should be about 7-9 pages long (reading time about 15 minutes).
Each workshop and performance will be allotted 25-40 minutes, and
leaders need to plan their ideas and activities accordingly. E-mail
submissions are welcome.
The conference will start at noon, Friday, April 14, and will include a
plenary speaker as well. Sessions will run through the day on Saturday,
and we will conclude with a post-conference party on Saturday evening.
Susquehanna University is covering the cost of registration for all
participants. Selinsgrove offers inexpensive accommodations, and some
room subsidies are available.
