Subject:        Call for Papers - 2005 British Graduate Shakespeare Conference


The Shakespeare Institute, part of the University of Birmingham and
located in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, will host its seventh annual
British Graduate Shakespeare Conference from 23 - 25 June 2005. The
conference provides an opportunity for graduate students from all over
the world to meet and discuss their research relating to Shakespeare,
the work of his contemporaries, and topics relating to the cultural
history of the period. All interested graduate students are invited to
give a paper at the conference, where they will be able to interact with
a community of researchers in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon,
birthplace of William Shakespeare. All undergraduate students in the
final two years of their course are also invited to attend the
conference as auditors. We encourage a wide variety of research topics -
previous conferences have included papers on performance history,
textual studies, critical theory, and cultural history.

Papers should be approximately twenty minutes long (roughly 3,000 words
or less), leaving five to ten minutes for questions. Delegates wishing
to give a paper must register by Friday, 22 April 2005. Early
registration is recommended, however, in order to ensure a place on the
conference programme. As indicated, we encourage a variety of research
topics, including, but not limited to:

Literary analysis of the plays and poems of Shakespeare
The work of Shakespeare's contemporaries
Performance studies relating to Shakespeare or Renaissance drama
Stage practice in Elizabethan / Jacobean England
Textual production in Early Modern England
Editorial practice and textual theory in relation to Renaissance drama
Literary theory and Shakespeare
The history of Shakespeare criticism
Cultural practices of Early Modern England
