CALL FOR PAPERS

The Eighth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference will be held 
this year at The Shakespeare Institute, in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, 
from 15 - 17th June 2006.  This interdisciplinary postgraduate 
conference invites papers from historical, literary and performance 
approaches that examine the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, 
including their cultural and theatrical history, appropriations, textual 
issues, and literary readings.

All graduate students are invited to give a paper at the conference, 
lasting approximately twenty minutes. Undergraduate students in their 
last two years of study are also invited and welcomed to the conference 
as auditors.

***************
The Shakespeare Institute holds its eighth annual British Graduate 
Shakespeare Conference this year, from 15 - 17 June 2006. We invite all 
graduates of Shakespearean and Renaissance studies to join us for this 
occasion. The conference provides a stimulating academic forum in which 
graduate students from all over the world can present their research, 
and meet together in an active centre of Shakespearean research and 
theatre: Shakespeare's home town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Our previous 
conferences have attracted scholars from all over the world, and we wish 
to sustain the mutually enriching diversity in research interests, 
disciplines and critical approaches that has characterized the 
conference in the past years. Undergraduate students in their final two 
years of study are also invited to attend the conference as auditors.

Professor Kate McLuskie, the Director of the Shakespeare Institute, will 
open the conference, and Dr. Catherine Alexander will be one of our 
guest speakers. Dr. Paul Edmondson from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust 
will also be presenting research in relation to Shakespeare's Sonnets 
(co-authored with Stanley Wells), and Sarah Stanton from Cambridge 
University Press will be speaking on academic publication. In between 
three days of postgraduate panel sessions, delegates will also be able 
to explore the beautiful and historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, and 
have the opportunity to attend a performance of Yukio Ninagawa's Titus 
Andronicus, hosted by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of their 
ground-breaking 'Complete Works' season. There will also be the 
opportunity to take advantage of the Shakespeare Centre Library and RSC 
archives, as well as the outstanding resources of the Shakespeare 
Institute Library.

Papers should be approximately twenty minutes long (3,000 words or 
less). Delegates wishing to give papers must register by Friday, 21st 
April 2006. We encourage early registration to ensure a place on the 
conference programme.
