The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 15.1318 Monday, 21 June 2004
From: Susan Brock <
Date: Friday, 18 Jun 2004 18:24:56 +0100
Subject: The New Shakespeare: A Writer and his Readers
A One-Day Conference on "The Return of the Author in Shakespeare Studies"
Plenary Speakers: Lukas Erne, Gary Taylor, and Stanley Wells.
The Shakespeare Programme at Lancaster University and Manchester
University Press will be hosting a one-day conference on Saturday 3 July
The possibility that Shakespeare did not write primarily for theatre
audiences but with readers in mind has far-reaching implications for the
study and performance of his plays. The aim of this conference will be
to situate the emerging idea of Shakespeare as a literary artist in
relation to his own representation of writing and reading. The
conference will take place in the historic Shire Hall of Lancaster Castle.
The day will include three plenary lectures, four seminar sessions under
the headings of 'Print', 'Performance', 'Reading', and 'Reception', and
a round table discussion including contributions from Lukas Erne, Ernst
Honigmann, Gary Taylor, Stanley Wells, and Richard Wilson.
