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

Seminar: Shakespeare's Next Editors

Though the activity of editing the plays of Shakespeare and his 
contemporaries was for over two hundred years the principle scholarly 
method for investigating these works, many younger scholars today 
confront an academic establishment that relegates editing, bibliography, 
and text studies to secondary or peripheral positions in graduate, 
doctoral, and junior faculty programs. This is particularly unfortunate 
given the exponential increase in innovative technologies, 
methodologies, and theories that encourage fresh approaches to essential 
questions about these plays.

This session seeks papers from, for, or about the next generation of 
Shakespeare editors and that explore particular approaches, theories, or 
case studies in the editorial study and representation of early modern 
dramatic texts. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the use 
of new digital technologies in editing, "post-Theory" philosophies in 
the construction of edited works, the place of editorial activities in 
modern theatrical contexts, and the pedagogical application of editorial 
insights as teaching tools in the twenty-first century classroom.

Please send your proposal (200 word max) to: Matteo Pangallo
