Subject: 	3rd British Shakespeare Association Conference

Interpreting Shakespeare: The Director, the Actor, the Editor, the 
Teacher, the Critic
3rd British Shakespeare Association Conference
University of Warwick, 31 August- 2 September 2007.

Registration is now open for this conference which brings together 
academics, students, theatre practitioners, teachers and enthusiasts for 
Shakespeare to consider the choices made in speaking Shakespeare, editing 
and teaching his work, directing his plays both on the stage and on film, 
and providing the music and stage design against which they are performed.

The programme will emphasise discussions and workshops to encourage active 
participation by delegates as well as the speakers. Panels will address 
Blogging the Bard, Editing Shakespeare, Speaking Shakespeare, Designing 
Shakespeare, Dressing Shakespeare, among other topics. The seminar 
programme invites contributions on filming Shakespeare's plays, 
nineteenth-century Shakespeare; Shakespeare in performance; practical 
approaches to teaching Shakespeare; European Shakespeare; Shakespeare 
celebration as interpretation; Shakespearean surfaces and, from young 
scholars, on postgraduate Shakespeares/postdiscipline Shakespeare. The 
deadline for submission of abstracts to the seminar convenors is 4 June.

The first day of the conference will have a special focus on teaching with 
a range of practical workshops from the Globe, the Royal Shakespeare 
Company and others.  On 1 September the conference will move to 
Stratford-upon-Avon for the day where the Shakespeare Institute will host 
a plenary session addressing the cultural value of Shakespeare in the 21st 
century and posing the question Is Shakespeare Good for You? and the 
Shakespeare Birthplace Trust will showcase its educational work and 
collections.

Speakers include Jonathan Bate, Ewan Fernie, Barbara Hodgdon, Kate 
McLuskie, Simon Palfrey, Robert Weimann, Stanley Wells and Paul Yachnin 
and theatre practitioners subject to availability.
