The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 18.0069 Thursday, 1 February 2007
Date: Wednesday, 31 Jan 2007 17:04:14 -0000
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.
