Subject:        Shakespeare Across Ages and Stages, May 1 2004

SHAKSPERians might be interested in this event for teachers of Shakespeare:

Shakespeare Across Ages and Stages, May 1 2004

The British Shakespeare Association and the English Subject Centre are
co-hosting an event for teachers of Shakespeare across the educational
spectrum at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London, on May 1, 2004. This event
will combine panel discussions with a workshop, demonstrations and two
performances. The aim is to stimulate a lively debate and to raise
issues of concern for teachers of Shakespeare from a variety of
environments.

In the morning the focus will be on particular plays, beginning with a
panel discussion about the challenges faced by those addressing Hamlet
including Professor Ann Thompson, Editor of the Arden Hamlet, Stephen
Unwin, Artistic Director of the English Touring Theatre and Giles Block,
Director of Hamlet at the Globe Theatre in 2000 starring Mark Rylance.
This will be followed by a workshop on Henry VII led by Dr Gordon
McMullan, King's College London.

In the afternoon more general teaching issues will be discussed by a
panel that spans colleges, universities and schools. Finally,
representatives from the British Library, the Royal Shakespeare Company,
Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and the Globe Theatre will demonstrate the
resources that they provide for teachers.

After a break for drinks a group from the Alderbrook School, Solihull
will perform an abridged version of Hamlet and the Marlowe Dramatic
Society, Cambridge will perform a series of staged readings. (Further
information is available at

booked at http://www.thebloomsbury.com/ .)

The English Subject Centre, as part of the national Learning and
Teaching Support Network (LTSN), has a remit to support innovation in
teaching across higher education.  This event has been put together to
support that remit. If you would like further information about this
event please contact Dr Christie Carson, project officer for C&IT,
