***** CALL FOR PAPERS *****

The Wooden O Symposium
Medieval and Renaissance Studies Conference
_______________________________________

August 5-7, 2002

Sherratt Library
Southern Utah University
Utah Shakespearean Festival
Cedar City, Utah, USA
_______________________________________

The Wooden O Symposium is a cross disciplinary conference that explores
Medieval and Renaissance Studies through the text and performance of
Shakespeare's plays.  Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to
submit papers that offer insights and new ideas springing from the era
of William Shakespeare.   His plays are replete with the language,
thoughts and arts of the Renaissance and Western culture and represent
an inexhaustible source for creative ideas and research.

Cedar City and SUU host the Utah Shakespearean Festival, recipients of
the 2000 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theater.  The conference
coincides with the Festival's summer season where three Shakespeare
plays will be performed in the Adams Memorial Theater, a unique
performance space modeled after Shakespeare's own Globe Theatre.  To
enrich the conference experience all Academic attendees ($90
registration) will receive a ticket to an evening performance of As You
Like It (Monday, Aug. 7).


*** Conference Priorities ***

* The  Utah Shakespearean Festival will be presenting As You Like It,
Cymbeline and Othello as part of their summer 2002 season.  Priority for
papers/presentations at the conference will be given to research
relating to one or more of these specific works.  Scholars attending the
conference will have the unique opportunity of immersing themselves in
research, text and performance in one of the most beautiful natural
settings in the western U.S.

* Graduate students are encouraged to attend and submit papers for
presentation at the conference's Graduate Sessions.

* Southern Utah University is a proud supporter of undergraduate
research and is pleased to announce that this conference will include an
exciting undergraduate component hosted by the local chapters of Sigma
Tau Delta (English Honors Society)and Phi Alpha Theta (History Honors
Society).  Undergraduates are encouraged to submit original papers for
consideration.
