Subject: 	Shakespeare and Law Conference

The School of Law at the University of Warwick (in conjunction with the 
Capital Centre and the RSC) is organising a major conference on 
Shakespeare and the law, to be hosted by the University of Warwick from 
July 9th to July 11th 2007.

The conference has already attracted many speakers of international 
reputation in the fields of law, history, literature, and theatre 
studies (including Jonathan Bate, Christian Biet, Peter Goodrich, 
Germaine Greer, Andrew Hadfield, B.J. and Mary Sokol and Ian Ward); as 
well as the participation of leading theatre practitioners, including 
actor, director, and writer, Michael Pennington, and RSC associate 
director, Gregory Doran.

The conference will launch the publication of a major academic journal, 
"Law and Humanities" (Hart Publishing). This is the first UK journal 
whose purpose is to provide a forum for multidisciplinary debate and 
discourse between the legal academy and the humanities' disciplines, 
such as classics, history, literature, music, philosophy, theology, 
theatre and film studies.

There will be a full programme of associated social events, including a 
reception at nearby Kenilworth Castle (with a talk on the visit by Queen 
Elizabeth to Kenilworth in 1575); a conference dinner (with eminent 
guest of honour and speaker); and the possibility of a theatre trip to 
the RSC in neighbouring Stratford-upon-Avon.

Full details and a booking form can be found on our website:
