Subject:        Shakespeare in Russia

Dear SHAKSPERians,

I am glad to inform you about the International Shakespeare Conference,
which took place at Vladimir, Russia, 27-30 June 2002. I hope, this
Conference means that Russia will be included in the World Shakespeare
movement on regular basis as the national association. As soon as we
open our own site, all SHAKSPERians will be informed.

The conference program featured two plenary (general) and some special
sessions that contained more than 50 paper presentations (some papers
were represented as reviews) on Text and historic realities ,  Myth and
symbols ,  Russian Shakespeare ,  Shakespeare and the theater  and
Translations problems . The abstracts of the papers are published in
bilingual edition.  The Conference Chairman was Prof. Alexey
Bartoshevitch from State University of Theatrical Art, Chairman of
Shakespeare Committee of Russian Academy of Sciences.

Some well-known Russian and foreign scientists took part in the
Conference, among them Prof. Stanly Wells (President, International
Shakespearian Association, Great Britain), John Carr, Jean Peterson,
Carol Enos and Marcela Costihova (different USA Universities). Eugene
Pasternak, the son of great Russian poet, Nobel Prize winner Boris
Pasternak, reported about Pasternak s translations from Shakespeare, and
so on.

As for me, my paper, Shakespeare and Internet  (annotated review of 129
different sites) was very much indebted to Hardy M. Cook s A SELECTED
GUIDE, which was the launching point for my work. I also informed our
Russian specialists about SHAKSPER as the most useful electronic
conference and hope, some of them will join us in near future.
