Subject:    CFP: Annual Shakespeare Conference

The 2010 Wooden O Symposium will be held in conjunction with the Rocky 
Mountain Medieval and Renaissance Association Conference (RMMRA) at 
Southern Utah University in Cedar City, Utah, from August 9-11. The 
Wooden O Symposium, sponsored by the Utah Shakespearean Festival and 
Southern Utah University's College of Visual and Performing Arts, the 
Gerald Sherratt Library, and the Department of English, is a 
cross-disciplinary conference focusing on the text and performance of 
Shakespeare's plays. Please note that in support of SUU's mission to 
promote undergraduate research, the Wooden O Symposium regularly 
includes at least one undergraduate panel as part of their program.

Conference Priorities -- The Wooden O Symposium invites papers on any 
topic related to Shakespeare and early modern drama, but gives priority 
to those relating to the Utah Shakespearean Festival's 2010 summer 
season: The Merchant of Venice, Much Ado About Nothing, and Macbeth. 
Additionally, RMMRA invites panel and paper proposals on their 
conference's special topic, "Politics and Performance in the Middle Ages 
and Renaissance." 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.

Selected papers from the symposium are published in the peer-reviewed 
Journal of the Wooden O Symposium.

Submission -- Conference co-chairs are Jessica Tvordi, Department of 
English, Southern Utah University and Michael Don Bahr, Education 
Director, Utah Shakespearean Festival.

Deadline for proposals is April 1, 2010.
