SHAKESPEARE'S CHILDREN /
CHILDREN'S SHAKESPEARES

11 OCTOBER 2003

AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SURREY ROEHAMPTON

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: CATHERINE BELSEY

FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

The child - as agent, symbol, witness or victim - is a recurrent
preoccupation in Shakespeare's work. Children also occupied a pivotal
role in the cultures of performance of early modern England. This
conference will explore these matters in both historical and modern
settings. It will investigate what the child meant and what it meant to
be a child for Shakespeare and his contemporaries, and trace the ways in
which Shakespeare has functioned subsequently in education, performance
and popular culture.

Proposals are invited for short papers (20 minutes), panel presentations
and workshops on all aspects of the subject of Shakespeare and childhood
worldwide. Topics for consideration might include:

.       Representations of the child in Shakespeare's plays
.       Early modern constructions of childhood and youth
.       Boy actresses/children's playing companies
.       Child performers on stage and screen
.       Adults playing children
.       Shakespeare in primary and secondary education
.       Shakespeare and Theatre-in-Education
.       Narrative treatments of Shakespeare
.       Illustrated editions and versions
.       Abbreviation, bowdlerisation and abridgement
.       Shakespeare and the changing curriculum around the world
.       Shakespeare in youth culture: allusions, citations, spin-offs
and parodies
.       Cartoon Shakespeares
.       Shakespeare and Writing for Children
.       Shakespeare on the Internet
.       Shakespeare and Childhood in the Novel
.       Shakespeare and Children's/Youth Theatre
.       Shakespeare, Childhood and the Visual Arts
