Shakespeare Association of America
Vancouver Venue for 1991 Meeting
Twenty-two workshops and research seminars will be
among the offerings at the nineteenth annual meeting of the
Shakespeare Association of America, 21-23 March 1991, in
Vancouver, British Columbia. The Four Seasons Hotel will be
the site of all workshops, seminars, and major sessions.
Anthony Dawson (University of British Columbia) will serve as
chair of the Local Arrangements Committee.
Members of the SAA have a choice of two workshops and
twenty research seminars scheduled for Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday afternoons in Vancouver.
Workshops allow members the opportunity to tailor
existing skills or to develop new abilities in their careers
as teachers, scholars, and contributors to theatrical
endeavors. In order to promote an atmosphere most conducive
to productive workshops, leaders of workshops may choose to
close the sessions to auditors. Research seminars offer
members an opportunity to develop and share their research on
a topic with other scholars with similar interests.
Every member of the SAA not already committed to take
part in a major session of the program may participate in one
workshop or research seminar. All registration forms must
reach the SAA Administrative Offices no later than
15 September, 1990.

Subject: SHAKSPER Hiatus Comes to an End
Just a note to advise you all that I've returned from a busy week of
seminars, interviews, and performances at the Stratford Festival,
and that the Shakespeare Electronic Conference is now back on-line.
I was very please to discover seven new member biographies and a number
of subscription requests in my mail tonight, and the new members bring
our total to 44.
Once I've enjoyed at least one night's good sleep back at home, I'll
try to write something more inspiring. In the meantime, please feel
free to continue or begin discussions on any topic of interest to you.
Thanks for your patience this past week -- and I promise it will not
happen again (any time soon).
