Subject: 	"In Shakespeare Day": Shakespeare Colloquium in New Jersey

13th Annual Shakespeare Colloquium at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

"In Shakespeare's Day: Society, Politics, and Theater" is the topic of 
the annual Shakespeare colloquium to be held at the Madison, NJ campus 
of Fairleigh Dickinson University on October 29 from 9:30-3:30 in room 
S-11 (Science Building). This will be the thirteenth in this series of 
programs. They are free and open to the public.

Four speakers will be featured. James P. Bednarz, Professor of English 
at CW Post College of Long Island University, will discuss the 
relationship between "serious" literature and commercial theater in 
Shakespeare's early years as a playwright. Professor Chris Fitter of 
Rutgers University will argue that Shakespeare's works reflect radical 
and skeptical traditions of the Renaissance. Margaret Mikesell of John 
Jay College will explore "advice" books written in Shakespeare's time 
and how they illuminate his plays, with particular focus on Hamlet. June 
Schlueter of Lafayette College will share her research into unpublished 
travel albums kept by foreign travelers to Shakespeare's London and 
explore their potential as new sources of history. Each talk will be 
followed by a discussion period and questions.

The final program will be available in a few weeks. The colloquia are 
organized by Harry Keyishian, Professor of English. For further 
information, call 973-443-8714 or write him at MS3-01, Fairleigh 
Dickinson University, Madison, NJ 07940 or by e-mail to
