2014 Shakespeare Colloquium at Fairleigh Dickinson University

 

October 18 is the date of the 2014 annual Shakespeare Colloquium at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham campus in Madison, NJ.  This marks the 22nd year of these day-long events. The Colloquium runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

 

This year’s provocative topic is “Shakespeare Bad and Shakespeare Wrong: Rethinking the Shakespearean.” Four scholars will discuss what can be learned by “bad” and “wrong” Shakespeare—in performance and in scholarship—and what the differences are.  

 

Dr. Zoltán Márkus (Vassar College) asks what kind of ethical assumptions, implications, or judgments are involved in distinguishing “bad” Shakespeare” from “wrong” Shakespeare. Dr. Iska Alter (Hofstra University) will discuss how and why Shakespeare was produced in Nazi Germany. Dr. Donovan Sherman (Seton Hall University) shows how the “wrongness” of Roland Emmerich’s 2011 film Anonymous reflects on our practices as readers and audiences of Shakespeare. Finally, Dr. Emily Weissbourd (Bryn Mawr College), through a discussion of Othello and the Spanish drama of its time, shows the difference between modern and Renaissance ideas of race, servitude and interracial marriage

Subject:    SAA Seminar Registration Deadline: 15 September

 

To all SAA members,

 

If you plan to take part in a seminar or workshop at the upcoming year’s SAA meeting in Vancouver but have not yet registered, please note that the registration deadline is fast approaching: 15 September. For descriptions of the year’s programs, visit the seminar description page.  

You may register online on the seminar and workshop page, where you will be required to submit four choices. SAA enrollments are processed on a first-registered, first-received basis. Although we make every effort to place you in your first-choice seminar or workshop, registration imbalances can render this impossible. In early October, you will receive notification of your seminar placement and an invitation to take part in the SAA’s Forty-Third Annual Meeting.

The conference will be held 1 - 4 April 2015. The meeting will open with a first group of seminars and workshops at 10:30 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, 2 April and will close with the annual dance late Saturday, 4 April. Our host hotel is the historic Fairmont Vancouver. Rooms are discounted to $135.00 USD per night for single and double occupancy; mandatory state and local taxes will be added at the current rate of 15 percent. The SAA has negotiated complimentary guestroom internet access at the Fairmont. The meeting registration fee, payable starting 1 January 2015, is $125 for faculty and postdoctoral scholars and $90 for graduate students. 

 

For those members interested in presenting new projects at the 2015 Digital Salon the deadline for proposals is 1 November.  Proposals may be submitted on the SAA digital salon page.

 

Many of you will be interested in attending the Tenth World Shakespeare Congress in the summer of 2016. The 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death will be marked with a conference that opens in Stratford-upon-Avon and travels to London. If you have not yet submitted a proposal for a seminar, workshop, or panel—but would like to—you will be glad to know that the deadline has been extended to 31 October 2014. For further information about the submission of proposals, please visit http://wsc2016.wordpress.com/call-for-papers/. Those wishing to find co-chairs for seminar sessions are invited to use the noticeboard facility on the website at http://wsc2016.wordpress.com/noticeboard/

I send greetings on behalf of Executive Director Lena Orlin who is currently on leave and Assistant Director Joseph J. Navitsky. We all hope to see you in Vancouver.
 

 

With best regards,

Bailey Yeager

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – EXTENDED DEADLINE

 

International Shakespeare Association

10th World Shakespeare Congress 2016:

‘Creating and Re-creating Shakespeare’

 

31 July to 6 August, 2016
London and Stratford-upon-Avon

 

The year 2016 marks four hundred years of popular, artistic, and scholarly enthusiasm for Shakespeare’s life and works. We justly celebrate Shakespeare as a creator of plays and poems, characters and ideas, words and worlds. But so too, in the centuries since the playwright’s death in 1616, have scholars and thinkers, writers, artists, and performers—of all kinds and from around the globe—re-created him. In such perpetual reinventions of Shakespeare we seem to have confirmation of Ben Jonson’s words: Shakespeare was “not of an age, but for all time”.

 

The tenth World Shakespeare Congress of the International Shakespeare Association will honour Shakespeare’s 400-year legacy and celebrate the continuing global resonance of his work. The Congress’s rich programme of plenary lectures, seminars, panels, workshops, events, and performances will take place across two successive locations: first in Stratford-upon-Avon, among the key sites of Shakespeare’s personal life; and subsequently in London, close to the site of his most famous workplace, the Globe theatre. WSC 2016 will offer unparalleled opportunities to engage with current Shakespeare performance, criticism, and pedagogy, and to connect with fellow Shakespeareans from around the world.

 

The Congress organisers welcome proposals for papers, panels, workshops, and other events (including performances and other creative responses) relating to any aspect of Shakespeare’s work, life, and continuing legacy.

 

Proposals of 500 words for seminars, panels, and workshops may be submitted to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

 

Workshops and seminars should be co-hosted with at least one other delegate. The Congress is an international event, and, as such, potential co-hosts are strongly encouraged to collaborate with delegates from other countries or geographical regions. Proposers will understand that there will be more space for seminars than panels on the conference programme.

 

Deadline for submissions: 31 October 2014

 

Those submitting proposals should ensure that their membership of the ISA is current.

 

Financial donations to the World Shakespeare Congress are greatly appreciated. All such donations will be used to provide grant subsidies for early-career scholars and delegates from countries with less competitive economies. For further information please write to  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

 

We look forward to welcoming delegates and their families and friends in the summer of 2016.

Subject:    Problem Sending Newsletters

 

Dear SHAKSPER subscribers,

 

SHAKSPER was located to a new server while I was in the UK. Since then there have been problems with the send mail function that are still to be worked out.

 

I hope that I have found a way around the problem until it is fixed.

 

Accept my apologies and bear with me.

 

Hardy
