Subject:	CFP: Shakespearean Performance Research Group

The Shakespearean Performance Research Group of the American Society for 
Theatre Research (ASTR) provides an ongoing home for the study of 
Shakespearean performance within ASTR.

For the 2008 conference, to be held in Boston, November 5-9, we seek 
papers that address issues relating to our three subgroups: 
Shakespearean Performance Histories; Shakespearean Performance Theories; 
and Shakespearean Performance Practices. What makes a "Shakespearean 
performance" count as "Shakespearean"?  Is this a genre of performance 
that is particularly defined/deformed/undone by textuality, authorship? 
What kinds of analytic strategies seem required by this genre of 
performance? Those wishing to propose a paper should submit a 250-word 
abstract and 50-word academic biographical statement, including current 
affiliations, if any, by Friday, June 6th, to

(proposals also can be mailed to Don Weingust, Department of Drama and 
Dance, Aidekman Arts Center, Tufts University, Medford, MA 02155).

Selected papers will be assigned to one of the three subgroups and the 
conveners will organize on-line communication of subgroup members before 
the conference.  At the three-hour conference session, papers will be 
discussed first within the subgroups, after which the groups will come 
together to exchange ideas. We will seek to continue discussion of the 
work of the group's members after the conference in an on-line forum 
moderated by the group's conveners (Catherine Burriss, Franklin J. 
Hildy, Robert Ormsby, Don Weingust, and W. B. Worthen), as we prepare 
for the 2009 conference.
