The International Shakespeare Association
Ninth World Shakespeare Congress
Prague, Czech Republic
17th-22nd July 2011

'Renaissance Shakespeare / Shakespeare Renaissances'

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Ninth World Shakespeare Congress in Prague will mark the next phase in a 
journey through four continents. Beginning in Vancouver, this international 
conference has travelled every five years since 1971 to share Shakespearian 
scholarship, performance, and pedagogy at another great site: Washington D.C., 
Stratford-upon-Avon, Berlin, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Valencia and Brisbane. The 
culturally rich city of Prague, a new setting for the Congress in central 
Europe, offers a wonderful opportunity to engage in dialogue about Shakespearian 
reception both here and throughout the world.

The location of the Congress in Prague, where Shakespeare's plays were most 
probably performed during his lifetime, provides the opportunity to approach 
Shakespeare's theatre in the context of cultural and political relations between 
Elizabethan and Jacobean England and Central Europe under the Habsburg Emperor 
Rudolph II and later on the eve of the Thirty Years' War. Delegates will be able 
to trace the steps of Dr. John Dee, Edward Kelley, Edmund Campion, and Elizabeth 
Weston as they tour the Baroque theatres and Rosenberg castles of South Bohemia.

The Congress theme 'Renaissance Shakespeare / Shakespeare Renaissances' speaks 
to current debates about 'Shakespeare as Cultural Catalyst' and 'Global 
Shakespeare'.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Proposals are now invited for the seminar, workshop and short paper (panel) 
sessions of the Congress.

Submission Guidelines
Proposals should be as detailed as possible and include a rationale as well as a 
list of problems or questions that the seminar, workshop or short paper (panel) 
session seeks to explore. They should include brief academic biographies of the 
proposed leaders and contributors of short papers.

Preference will be given to proposals which, in their subject matter, reflect 
the international nature of the Congress. Geographical diversity in group 
leadership is actively encouraged so that the two leaders of a seminar, for 
example, may come from different countries or continents.

Participants are encouraged to interpret 'Renaissance Shakespeare / Shakespeare 
Renaissances' geographically, historically, culturally, and to consider text and 
performance in a full range of media.

All proposals will be reviewed by members of the ISA Programme Committee.

Submission Deadline:
Proposals of 500 words should be sent to Dr. Nick Walton, ISA Secretary, 
preferably by email at

  or to The Shakespeare Centre, 
Henley Street, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 6QW, United  Kingdom, to 
arrive by 28th February 2009.

Those submitting proposals should ensure that their membership of the ISA is 
current.
