Subject: 	UPDATED CFP: Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference (8/15-10/11-13)

UPDATE: Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference 2007
Appropriating Shakespeare
October 11-13, 2007, The University of Akron

We are proud to announce our Plenary Speakers:

*Christy Desmet, University of Georgia

   and

*Katherine Rowe, Bryn Mawr

The Ohio Shakespeare Conference has changed its name with the addition 
of West Virginia's Marshall University to its consortium.

Submissions for our joint theme-focused conference should explore the 
ways that Shakespeare and other early modern writers invoke sources, 
both literary and cultural, to create meanings for their original 
audiences, as well as how these early modern works have been 
appropriated for use in later eras. We welcome 300 word abstracts or 
proposals. Proposals for panels are also welcome. Submissions may 
include treatment of Shakespeare and/or his contemporaries and their 
culture, and all presentations are eligible for submission to the 
conference's published, juried Proceedings.

For a list of suggested topics, please see our website at 
http://www.marietta.edu/~engl/OVSC/

   ****Submission Deadline: 15 August 2007****

If enough interest is shown, we will provide special undergraduate paper 
sessions.

Please include the following information in your conference proposals or 
abstracts:

Name, e-mail address, college or university affiliation, mailing 
address, audio visual needs, and times when it is impossible for you to 
present your work during the October conference timeframe. Also please 
indicate if you are an undergraduate student, and if you are part of a 
pre-arranged panel.

Papers presented by students will be eligible for consideration for the 
M. Rick Smith Graduate Student Essay Memorial Prize and the M. Rick 
Smith Undergraduate Essay Memorial Prize.

E-mail submissions, sent to both organizers, are encouraged, though 
mailed submissions will also be accepted.
