Subject:	Announcing an Undergraduate Conference

7th Annual Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference of New England, 
"Shakespeare: The Natural, The Unnatural, and The Supernatural"
     (formerly Central New England Undergraduate Conference)
Saturday, April 19th 8:30-5:00
Worcester State College, Worcester, MA

Papers should be geared for a fifteen minute presentation and may explore:

-How Shakespeare and his contemporaries confirm, interrogate, challenge 
sixteenth- and seventeenth- century views of the natural and the unnatural.

-How stagings, criticisms, films, and interpretations of works over time 
reflect changing perspectives on what is natural or unnatural.

-How the supernatural, especially, embodies views on what is natural or 
unnatural, what is the proper order of creation.

-How do Gods, (Christian and Pre-Christian), wise/holy men and women, 
mages, visions and visionaries, demons, witches, and fairies embody or 
define conceptions of Self and Other, fears about gender, racial, 
national or religious differences.

-How does the supernatural represent the power of the imagination to 
serve as a conduit to the transcendent or the demonic.

Proposals are due March 8, 2008 and should run to 300 words.  They must 
include contact information of student's name, address, telephone 
number, school, and faculty sponsor
