Creative Visions: Shakespeare on Stage and on Film

Seventh Annual Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference

Call for Papers

Is Portia a "perpetual" cross dresser?  Is Titus Taymor's or Tamora's?
Without the women in Richard III, would Richard himself be as powerful?
Is Shakespeare racist and sexist or is he progressive and critical of

these questions as we explore Creative Visions: Shakespeare on Stage and
on Film, a Student Conference held November 16-17, 2001 on the campus of

As King's College celebrates fifty years of sharing Shakespeare with
students, we are pleased to invite you and your students to participate
in the Seventh Annual Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference.  We welcome
student papers, workshops, interactive presentations, and acts that
explore performance adaptations of Shakespeare's many works. Established
to provide students with constructive interaction with their peers and
active investigation into the life and work of Shakespeare, the
conference serves as a vehicle to foster undergraduate scholarship and
further study.

The conference will begin on Friday, November 16 at 1:00 PM, and will
include plenary speakers, a Renaissance Feast, traditional paper
sessions, workshops, and performances, and the opportunity to see a
production of Twelfth Night.  Sessions will continue through Saturday,
and will conclude with a post-conference party in the evening.

Submissions are not limited to this year's theme, and we accept a
variety of projects and ideas.  Papers should be no longer than nine
pages (reading time ten - fifteen minutes).  Further, each workshop will
be allotted twenty-five to forty minutes, and we ask that student
leaders plan their activities accordingly (specifications and deadlines
are enclosed).

Nestled in the Wyoming Valley, King's is easily accessible by car and
plane.  Wilkes-Barre offers inexpensive accommodations and a number of
unique shops and eateries.

Please announce the conference to your students and encourage them to
conduct a workshop, read a paper, or simply attend.  Thank you for your
anticipated participation and interest.  If you have any questions
please feel to contact us.

Sincerely,

Dr. Megan Lloyd                                 Sara DeLuca, Student
