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

The Wooden O Symposium
Medieval and Renaissance Studies Conference
_______________________________________

August 4-6, 2003

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 Much
Ado About Nothing (Monday, Aug. 4).


*** Conference Priorities ***

* The Utah Shakespearean Festival will be presenting Measure for
Measure, Much Ado About Nothing and Richard III 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 chapter of Sigma
Tau Delta (English Honors Society).  Undergraduates are encouraged to
submit original papers for consideration.
