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 started a new
research seminar in early modern drama for postgraduate students and
people who have recently gained their PhDs.  The aim is to create 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.  By inviting those who have recently completed their
postgraduate research to contribute, we hope to bridge the gap that can
exist between advanced postgraduate students and junior faculty. The
seminar is open to all postgraduate students.  For details of past
seminars see the seminar website (http://www.totus.org/GRS/index.htm)
maintained by Gabriel Egan.

Seminars are held during the "Read Not Dead" seasons of staged readings
at the Globe, so that the participants are given the opportunity to see
some of the more obscure plays of the period performed. "Read Not Dead"
is a project to stage-read all of the 400 or so non-Shakespearean plays
written between 1567 and 1642 with professional casts.   For further
information about the staged readings, and about the full Globe
Education autumn programme, see the Globe Theatre website
(www.shakespeares-globe.org)

The next meeting of the Globe Research Seminar will take place from 12pm
to 2pm on 17 November 2002 at the Globe Theatre.  The theme will be
'John Lyly and the Satiric Tradition in England and France' and the
speakers will be Annaliese Connolly (Sheffield Hallam University) and
Philip Crispin (Royal Holloway, University of London).  The staged
reading will be John Lyly, Sapho and Phao (3pm in the Globe Education
Theatre, corner of Park Street and Bear Gardens).  The seminar is free
of charge, but tickets for the staged readings (
