European Shakespeare Research Association (ESRA)

Between 19 and 22 November 2009, the University of Pisa hosted a highly 
successful Shakespeare and Conflict conference. Members from many 
European countries but also from Asia and the US agreed that the 
conference -- organised by Carla Dente and Sara Soncini of the 
University of Pisa -- was a truly memorable event, in terms of the 
papers given, the lively seminars in which many of us participated, and 
the social programme.

During the general meeting on the last day of the conference, the 
President of the Deutsche Shakespeare-Gesellschaft, Andreas Hofele, 
proposed to have the next ESRA conference coincide with the 2011 
conference of the Deutsche Shakespeare-Gesellschaft, to be held in 
Weimar (Germany), in April 2011. The members of ESRA unanimously 
accepted the proposal. The theme of the conference that the German 
Shakespeare Society and ESRA will be preparing together over the next 
eighteen months will be "Shakespeare's Shipwrecks."

At the Pisa gathering, the members of ESRA elected a new board:

Board Members:	
Ton Hoenselaars, Chair (Utrecht University)
Clara Calvo, Conference (University of Murcia)
Marta Gibinska, Treasurer (University of Cracow)
Keith Gregor, Secretary (University of Murcia)
Michael Dobson (Birkbeck, University of London)
Boika Sokolova (University of Notre Dame in London)
Sara Soncini (University of Pisa)
Andreas Hofele (University of Munich)

Do you want to know more about ESRA? Do you want to register as a 
member? Please, consult the association's website at

conference will soon be available on the website of the Deutsche 
<http://www.shakespeare-gesellschaft.de/en.html>which can also be 
reached via the ESRA website.

With best wishes, on behalf of the entire board.
