The Wooden O Symposium is a cross disciplinary conference exploring
Medieval and Renaissance Studies through the text and performance of
Shakespeare's plays. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to
submit papers that offer insights and new ideas springing from the era
of William Shakespeare. His plays are replete with the language,
thoughts, and arts of the Renaissance and Western culture and represent
an inexhaustible source for creative ideas and research.
Cedar City, Utah, and Southern Utah University host the Utah
Shakespearean Festival, recipients of the 2000 Tony Award for
Outstanding Regional Theater. The conference coincides with the
Festival's summer season where three Shakespeare plays will be performed
in the Adams Memorial Theater, a unique performance space modeled after
Shakespeare's own Globe Theatre. To enrich the conference experience
all Academic attendees will receive a ticket to an evening performance
of The Merry Wives of Windsor (Monday, Aug. 7).
