Subject: 	Shakespeare's 443rd Birthday in Egypt

My Fellow Noble SHAKSPEReans:

The department of English, Faculty of Al Alsun, Ain Shams University, 
Cairo, Egypt celebrated the Bard's 443rd Birthday by holding a one-day 
conference: Shakespeare: Our Contemporary. Tribute was paid to Jan Kott 
and Peter Brook who brought the Bard to life.

The program included: adaptations of Shakespeare's plays like The Harlem 
Duet, The Tempest as a Metadrama, A Semiotic reading of As You Like it, 
Comparing translations of the Tempest into Arabic , Studies of the 
Sonnets, a comparative study of Hamlet and Naguib Mahfouz's The Road (a 
novel), Shakespeare's and Wole Soyinka's Hamlet, and finally the reception 
of Shakespeare in Egypt where it was noted how the Bard's Hamlet was a 
popular piece in Upper Egypt, a region known for its culture of revenge.

The event is possibly the first of its kind in the academia in Egypt. Yet, 
there is more to come in the future to celebrate the birth of a man to 
whom departments of English all over the world owe much. Suggestions from 
fellow SHAKSPEReans for future celebrations are most welcome

Yours,
Karma Sami
Chair of the dept. of English, Alsun, Ain Shams
