The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 19.0502 Wednesday, 27 August 2008
Date: Saturday, 23 Aug 2008 17:19:43 -0400
Subject: Extended Deadline for the OVSC
The Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference is accepting abstracts for its annual
conference to be held October 2-5, 2008, at Youngstown State University with
Plenary addresses by Paul Yachnin and Sharon O'Dair. The theme for this year's
meeting, Working Shakespeares, is meant to solicit a broad range of inquiries
into issues of labor and market, class and status, civic and public in both the
works of Shakespeare and the profession at large. In our current cultural
moment, a time in which the gap between rich and poor widens at an alarming pace
and universities are facing shifting market demands, how might we rethink
Shakespeare studies from perspectives that address these concerns?
Selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Abstracts should be submitted by Sept. 1 to co-organizers
