Shakespeare Reception in the Baltic Region Today
International Conference organized by Theatrum Gedanense Foundation and
The Polish Shakespeare Association
Gdansk, 6-8 August 2004
1st Call for Papers
The countries surrounding the Baltic Sea, which had developed their own
unique responses to a shared cultural background, have been thrust into
radically different political and social circumstances in the aftermath
of the two world wars. In the wake of the collapse of Communism the
region may rediscover its long lost cultural affinity in diversity.
Inquiry into the translations, adaptations, theatrical productions and
Shakespearean reflexes in contemporary literature offers an opportunity
to assess the reception of Shakespeare's drama in the cultures of the
Baltic region (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania,
Poland, Russia, Sweden).
We invite scholars, theatre directors, critics and performers to submit
their contributions. The duration of the presentation should not exceed
30 minutes. The deadline for the registration forms and abstracts (circa
100 words) is 1 May, 2004. The organizers cover travel and accommodation
costs of those participants whose papers have been accepted and will
assist other participants in booking budget accommodation in Gdansk. As
the Conference coincides with the 8th International Shakespeare Festival
in Gdansk, the participants will be offered complimentary tickets to
some of the performances.
The proceedings will be published in a bilingual, Polish-English edition
(languages of the conference) in 2004. Given the tight deadlines, we
would appreciate if the papers were submitted by 1 July (a hard copy and
floppy disc, 12-15 pages, footnotes, MLA Style-sheet; Address:
