Subject:        Globe Research Seminar in Early Modern Drama


Globe Education, in coordination with the English Department of King's
College London, the Drama Department of University of Bristol and the
Shakespeare Institute of the University of Birmingham, has initiated a
new research seminar in early modern drama for postgraduate students and
people who have recently gained their PhDs. The seminar is a forum for
up-and-coming scholars working in English and Drama to talk about their
work with those who are at a similar stage in their careers, and all
postgraduate students are welcome.

The next seminar takes place at Shakespeare's Globe London From 12 noon
to 2 pm on Sunday 2 December, and there will be two speakers:

Farah Karim (Royal Holloway) "Cosmetics in early modern drama"

Heloise Senechal (Shakespeare Institute) "Stephen Gosson and acting"

After the speakers there will be questions and wine.

At 3pm there will be a "Read Not Dead" performance of Thomas Drue's _The
Duchess of Suffolk_ in the Globe Education Centre.  "Read Not Dead" is a
Globe Education project to stage-read all of the 400 or so
non-Shakespearian plays written between 1567 and 1642 with professional
casts, and so far about 10 percent of this body of work has been
performed and digitally recorded by Globe Education.

The seminar is free of charge, but tickets for the staged readings will
