The Wooden O Symposium
Medieval and Renaissance Studies Conference

August 7-9, 2006

Sherratt Library
Southern Utah University
Utah Shakespearean Festival
Cedar City, Utah, USA

The Wooden O Symposium is a cross disciplinary conference exploring 
Medieval and Renaissance Studies through the text and performance of 
Shakespeare's plays.  Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to 
submit papers that offer insights and new ideas springing from the era 
of William Shakespeare.   His plays are replete with the language, 
thoughts, and arts of the Renaissance and Western culture and represent 
an inexhaustible source for creative ideas and research.

Cedar City, Utah, and Southern Utah University host the Utah 
Shakespearean Festival, recipients of the 2000 Tony Award for 
Outstanding Regional Theater.  The conference coincides with the 
Festival's summer season where three Shakespeare plays will be performed 
in the Adams Memorial Theater, a unique performance space modeled after 
Shakespeare's own Globe Theatre.  To enrich the conference experience 
all Academic attendees will receive a ticket to an evening performance 
of The Merry Wives of Windsor (Monday, Aug. 7).

*** Conference Priorities ***

* The Utah Shakespearean Festival will be presenting The Merry Wives of 
Windsor, Antony and Cleopatra, and Hamlet, as part of their summer 2006 
season.  Priority for papers/presentations at the conference will be 
given to research relating to one or more of these specific works. 
Scholars attending the conference will have the unique opportunity of 
immersing themselves in research, text and performance in one of the 
most beautiful natural settings in the western U.S.

* Graduate students are encouraged to attend and submit papers for 
presentation at the conference's Graduate Sessions.

* Southern Utah University is a proud supporter of undergraduate 
research and is pleased to announce that this conference will include an 
exciting undergraduate component hosted by the SUU Honors Program. 
Undergraduates are encouraged to submit original papers for consideration.
