The Centre for the Study of the Renaissance, University of Warwick (UK),
is organising a conference on Elizabethan progresses. It'll take place
at King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon, on 12-13 April (2003).

I hope SHAKSPERians who attended our biography conference have received
the flier(s) about the upcoming conference by now. (If you haven't, you
can find the organiser's contact details below.)

I told the conference organiser that I could post the information online
if she wanted me to, but so far she hasn't forwarded any further details
to me. I believe Patrick Collinson is one of the keynote speakers.

For further information, contact Dr. Jayne Archer (conference organiser)

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0302 400th Anniversary of Elizabeth I

The Huntington Library opened a new exhibition on Elizabeth I just
before Christmas:  "Gloriana! The Golden Legend of Elizabeth I," in the
West Hall of Library, through June 15, 2003.  Web page:
http://www.huntington.org/ArtDiv/queen.html

Here's the squib from the library:  The life of one of England's
greatest monarchs, Elizabeth I, is explored in this exhibition, drawn
exclusively from materials in The Huntington's collections. The exhibit
commemorates the 400th anniversary of the death of the "Virgin Queen" on
March 24, 1603. One of the central themes explored is how Elizabeth used
the media of the day to create and control her own image. Featured in
the exhibit will be original letters and documents bearing Elizabeth's
distinctive signature along with rare books synonymous with Renaissance
English literature. A stunning selection of early prints will document
the most famous people and events of Elizabethan England: the Queen and
her Court, the establishment of the Anglican Church, the danger of Mary
Queen of Scots, the defeat of the Spanish Armada, Sir Francis Drake's
circumnavigation of the world, and the extraordinary outpouring of
poetry, prose and drama inspired by the queen that helped create the
legend of Elizabeth as "Gloriana."

Among associated events are:

EXHIBIT LECTURE: "Arrayed in Majesty:
Material and Symbolic Aspects of the Clothing of Elizabeth I of England"
February 18 (Tuesday) 7:30 p.m.
The adage "Clothes make the man (or woman)" was even truer in Tudor
times than in our own. As princess, Elizabeth largely had her clothed
identity fashioned for her. After coming to the throne, however, she
deployed the fashions, colors, and ornamentation of her dress to shape
and enact her special "Virgin Queenship." Janel Mueller, Dean of
Humanities at The University of Chicago, will discuss the royal wardrobe
and how it helped create the Elizabethan legend. This lecture is
presented in conjunction with the exhibit "Gloriana! The Golden Legend
of Elizabeth I," on view December 20 through June 15 in the Library.
Free. Information: (626) 405-2100.

CONFERENCE: "Redefining British Theater History: From Script to Stage in
Early Modern England"
February 28-March 1 (Friday-Saturday) 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This two-day conference will consider the complex and changing relation
of authors to actors, and text to performance, in Shakespeare's theater.
Registration is $25.00 (graduate students free). Optional lunches are
available at an additional cost. For more information, call (626)
405-2194 or e-mail

 . Friends' Hall.

CHILDREN'S WORKSHOP: "Queen for a Day"
March 8 (Saturday) 9 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Imagine being a queen (or king) for a day in the time of Elizabeth I.
Was it all pomp and pageantry or a royal pain? Kids will explore the
realm of queens and courtiers in the exhibit "Gloriana! The Golden
Legend of Elizabeth I," and then they'll have some hands-on fun creating
an authentic Elizabethan craft.  Ages 6 and up. $15 (Includes all
materials and one free admission for an accompanying adult.) Space is
limited.  Registration: (626) 405-2128.

Comment:        RE: SHK 14.0302 400th Anniversary of Elizabeth I

To mark the 400th anniversary of the death of Queen Elizabeth I, the
Huntington Library in San Marino, California, has as its major exhibit
through 15 June "Gloriana! The Golden Legend of Elizabeth I." The
display includes letters and documents, rare books, early prints --
including the Hilliard miniature paintings of the Queen -- and, as they
say, more.

Cheers,
