Subject: ANZSA Conference: Drawing Out Shakespeare
Drawing Out Shakespeare: ANZSA Conference, The University of Sydney,
17-19 June 2010. Deadline for submissions: 24 March 2010.
Call for Papers
Education is a 'drawing out' -- of knowledge, experience, of the learner
and of the teacher. Situations, narratives and interrogations of
teaching and learning occur frequently in Shakespeare's plays and many
other texts of the period. The problems of teaching 400-year-old texts,
under different societal, technological, cultural, and even geographical
constraints, remain challenging today.
The conference will have a dual focus, covering Shakespearean pedagogy
in its widest sense, then and now. Papers might consider ways of
engaging students with Shakespearean and other Early Modern drama, the
educational uses of reconstructions such as the London Globe, the
effects and effectiveness of Shakespeare on film, the uses of
'Shakespeare' in other modes of teaching and learning, in the past as
well as the present. Equally, they might explore the many ideas about
learning and teaching in the Early Modern period, scenes and narratives
of pedagogy in Shakespearean and other theatres -- including the writer
'instructing' his actors via the processes of rehearsal and enskillment.
Theoretical issues, for example those arising from gender, class and
ideas of childhood, invite development in these contexts.
Proposals for theme-based panels and workshops focusing on ways of
exploring Shakespeare are welcome, as well as individual short papers.
Papers on the teaching and learning of Shakespeare in schools are
especially welcome. Proposals for 20-minute papers should be submitted
for consideration by the programme panel at
