Building on previous initiatives in the expanding field of "Shakespeare
in Europe", the conference will assess the reception  and impact of
Shakespeare's work across Europe from the seventeenth century to the
present. Embracing (and, where necessary, interrelating), the areas of
Scholarship & Criticism, Translation and performance, the conference
will provide an opportunity to examine the extent of Shakespeare's
influence on different national cultures, as well as the contribution of
those cultures to Shakespeare's standing in Europe and indeed the world
as a whole. As well as reassessing the earliest textual and stage
manifestations of Shakespeare's work across the continent, there will be
a chance to discuss the myriad processes by which the playwright's work
has been absorbed and adapted by different cultural
producers/institutions, the concept of a Shakespeare "without his
language" and the complex relations between the reception of the plays
in the English and non-English-speaking countries.  In these and other
issues discussed, the stress will also fall inevitably on the historical
factors affecting the spread of Shakespeare's work in Europe over the
last four centuries.

Keynote lectures in the areas of Scholarship & Criticism, Translation
and Performance will be given by Balz Engler (U. of Basle), Martin
