Research Seminar in Early Modern Drama

Globe Education, in coordination with the English Department of King's
College London, the Drama Department of University of Bristol and the
Shakespeare Institute of the University of Birmingham, is starting a new
research seminar in early modern drama for postgraduate students and
people who have recently gained their PhDs.  The aim is to create a
forum for up-and-coming scholars working in English and Drama to talk
about their work with those who are at a similar stage in their
careers.  By inviting those who have recently completed their
postgraduate research to contribute, we hope to bridge the gap that can
exist between advanced postgraduate students and junior faculty.  The
seminar will be open to all postgraduate students.

The intended format is that two or three participants will give short
presentations on their current research.  Those who are giving
presentations will be asked to suggest some background reading in
advance of the meeting.

Seminars will be held during the "Read Not Dead" season at the Globe, so
that the participants will be able to see some of the more obscure plays
of the period performed. "Read Not Dead" is a project to stage-read all
of the 400 or so non-Shakespearian plays written between 1567 and 1642
with professional casts, and so far about 10 percent of this body of
work has been performed and digitally recorded by Globe Education. The
Research seminar will be from 12pm to 2pm, with a glass of wine and a
break for lunch before the staged reading at 3pm.  The seminar will be
free of charge, but tickets for the staged readings will cost
