Subject:        Globe 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, has initiated a
research seminar in early modern drama for postgraduate students and
people who have recently gained their PhDs. The seminar is 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, and all
postgraduate students are welcome.

The next seminar takes place at Shakespeare's Globe London From 12 noon
to 2 pm on Sunday 3 March, and there will be two speakers:

1) Carol Morley (University of Westminster) "'Missing, presumed deadly':
William (son of John) Heminges and the rewards and pitfalls of editing
neglected drama"

2) Eleanor Lowe (Shakespeare Institute) "Editing Chapman's _A Humorous
Day's Mirth_"

In the chair will be Tom Rutter (University College London).

After the speakers there will be questions and wine.

At 3pm there will be a "Read Not Dead" performance of John Day's _Law
Tricks, or Who Would Have Thought It?_ in the Globe Education Centre.
"Read Not Dead" is a Globe Education 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 seminar is free of charge, but tickets for the staged readings will
