CALL FOR PAPERS: POSTGRADUATE STRAND OF THE BRITISH SHAKESPEARE
De Montfort University, Leicester: 29th - 31st August, 2003
Keynote speakers include: Michael Bogdanov; Professor Stanley Wells;
Professor Russell Jackson; Professor Catherine Belsey.
As part of the academic strand of the forthcoming British Shakespeare
Association conference we are developing a number of dedicated
postgraduate sessions. These have been organised in order to provide a
supportive environment in which to foster co-operation and exchange
between postgraduates working on Shakespeare. The sessions are
primarily aimed at new postgraduates (including Master's students) and
will provide students with an opportunity to present their work in front
of their peers and to receive useful feedback. The sessions will follow
the format of academic research seminars, with papers pre-circulated to
allow maximum time for discussion during the seminar. Submissions are
welcomed on all aspects of Shakespeare studies but participants may
particularly wish to address the themes of the academic research
seminars or of the three panel sessions: Shakespeare in the past /
Shakespeare present / Shakespeare in the future.
There will also be a session for postgraduates on practical issues (how
to write conference papers, publication, job hunting, etc) with several
recently completed PhD students from across the UK. The postgraduate
sessions will take place on the morning of Saturday 30th August, in
order to minimise costs whilst also allowing participants to take part
in a broad range of other activities at the BSA conference.
The postgraduate convenor, Fiona Ritchie (
be delighted to answer any further queries about the postgraduate strand
of the conference. Abstracts of 150-200 words should be submitted by
email to the above address by 31 March 2003. The deadline for
completion of papers will be 30 June 2003.
