Subject:    Australia-New Zealand Shakespeare Association Conference

Dear Colleagues,

The 2010 Australia-New Zealand Shakespeare Association (ANZSA) 
Conference will be held in Sydney, Australia from 17 to 19 June 2010. 
The theme is "Drawing Out Shakespeare."

Education is a 'drawing out' -- of knowledge, experience, of the learner 
and of the teacher. Situations, narratives and interrogations of 
teaching and learning occur frequently in Shakespeare's plays and many 
other texts of the period. The problems of teaching 400-year-old texts, 
under different societal, technological, cultural, and even geographical 
constraints, remain challenging today.

The conference will have a dual focus, covering Shakespearean pedagogy 
in its widest sense, then and now. Papers might consider ways of 
engaging students with Shakespearean and other Early Modern drama, the 
educational uses of reconstructions such as the London Globe, the 
effects and effectiveness of Shakespeare on film, the uses of 
'Shakespeare' in other modes of teaching and learning, in the past as 
well as the present. Equally, they might explore the many ideas about 
learning and teaching in the Early Modern period, scenes and narratives 
of pedagogy in Shakespearean and other theatres  --  including the 
writer 'instructing' his actors via the processes of rehearsal and 
enskillment. Theoretical issues, for example those arising from gender, 
class and ideas of childhood, invite development in these contexts.

Proposals for theme-based panels and workshops focusing on ways of 
exploring Shakespeare are welcome, as well as individual short papers. 
Papers on the teaching and learning of Shakespeare in schools are 
especially welcome. Proposals for 20-minute papers should be submitted 
for consideration by the programme panel by email to Professor Penny Gay 
(This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by 31 January 2010.
