Subject:    CFP: Local/Global Shakespeares: Localizing Shakespeare in Asia

CALL FOR PAPERS
Local/Global Shakespeares: 4th British Shakespeare Association Conference
King's College London & Shakespeare's Globe
11-13 September 2009

Seminar: Localizing Shakespeare in Asia

Although each Asian community has its own theatrical tradition, 
Shakespeare is probably the most read, studied, and performed single 
playwright in Asia. On the one hand, Shakespeare's manifold presence 
exerts enormous influence: he is incorporated into formal education of 
English, translated and transformed on stage, and popularized by comic 
books and animation. On the other hand, Asia - both as a treasury of 
literature and art and as an emerging superpower - also informs 
Shakespeare scholarship and performance in the West. This seminar aims 
at exploring the intricate relations between Shakespeare and Asia.

Topics may include, but are not restricted to:

     * Shakespeare and British colonization in Asia
     * Shakespeare and Asian indigenous theatres
     * Shakespeare and Asian politics
     * Shakespeare and Asian religions
     * Shakespeare and Asian philosophy
     * Shakespeare and American cultural imperialism in Asia
     * Shakespeare and Asian popular culture

Please send your proposal (200 word max) to: Bi-qi Beatrice Lei
