Between 19 and 22 November 2009, the University of Pisa hosted a highly
successful Shakespeare and Conflict conference. Members from many
European countries but also from Asia and the US agreed that the
conference -- organised by Carla Dente and Sara Soncini of the
University of Pisa -- was a truly memorable event, in terms of the
papers given, the lively seminars in which many of us participated, and
the social programme.
During the general meeting on the last day of the conference, the
President of the Deutsche Shakespeare-Gesellschaft, Andreas Hofele,
proposed to have the next ESRA conference coincide with the 2011
conference of the Deutsche Shakespeare-Gesellschaft, to be held in
Weimar (Germany), in April 2011. The members of ESRA unanimously
accepted the proposal. The theme of the conference that the German
Shakespeare Society and ESRA will be preparing together over the next
eighteen months will be "Shakespeare's Shipwrecks."
At the Pisa gathering, the members of ESRA elected a new board:
Ton Hoenselaars, Chair (Utrecht University)
Clara Calvo, Conference (University of Murcia)
Marta Gibinska, Treasurer (University of Cracow)
Keith Gregor, Secretary (University of Murcia)
Michael Dobson (Birkbeck, University of London)
Boika Sokolova (University of Notre Dame in London)
Sara Soncini (University of Pisa)
Andreas Hofele (University of Munich)

With best wishes, on behalf of the entire board.
