*****************************************************************

NEW DIRECTION IN BIOGRAPHIES OF SHAKESPEARE, MARLOWE & 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:

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