*******************************************************************
NEW DIRECTIONS IN BIOGRAPHIES OF SHAKESPEARE, MARLOWE AND JONSON

A Two-Day International Conference to be Held
at King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon
on 22-23 September 2001
*******************************************************************

For a long period, biography seemed a dead issue in literary and theatre
studies. Now a number of scholars are writing biographies of early
modern authors. Why has this change taken place? This conference will
explore the "new directions" in the biographies of three Elizabethan and
Jacobean playwrights: Shakespeare, Marlowe and Jonson. It will examine
the most recent biographical studies of the playwrights and attempt to
chart a course for future studies.

Participants include:
Lloyd Davis (Queensland, Australia), Ian Donaldson (Cambridge),
Katherine Duncan-Jones (Oxford), Richard Dutton (Lancaster), Peter
Holland (The Shakespeare Institute), Lisa Hopkins (Sheffield Hallam),
J.R. Mulryne (Warwick), Alan H. Nelson (UC, Berkeley), David Riggs
(Stanford), Margaret Shewring (Warwick), Stanley Wells (The Shakespeare
Birthplace Trust), Richard Wilson (Lancaster), Blair Worden (Sussex)

The lectures will be held in "Big School", the schoolroom in which it is
probable that Shakespeare himself was taught.

Conference Fee:
