Subject:    Extended Deadline for the OVSC

The Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference is accepting abstracts for its annual 
conference to be held October 2-5, 2008, at Youngstown State University with 
Plenary addresses by Paul Yachnin and Sharon O'Dair. The theme for this year's 
meeting, Working Shakespeares, is meant to solicit a broad range of inquiries 
into issues of labor and market, class and status, civic and public in both the 
works of Shakespeare and the profession at large. In our current cultural 
moment, a time in which the gap between rich and poor widens at an alarming pace 
and universities are facing shifting market demands, how might we rethink 
Shakespeare studies from perspectives that address these concerns?

Selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

Abstracts should be submitted by Sept. 1 to co-organizers
