Shakespeare's Globe Postgraduate Seminar

Shakespeare's Folio: Past and Present
Thursday 15 May 2008

Shakespeare's Globe invites all postgraduates to a seminar on the First Folio. If you would like to attend please email globe.research@hotmail.co.uk with details of your full name, university and research subject.

Paratexts in the Shakespeare First Folio
John Miles - Royal Holloway, University of London

John will consider extra-literary aspects of the First Folio, particularly its entry in the Stationer's Register, and explore how these affect our approach to Shakespeare's plays.

Shakespeare in the British Library
Dr Moira Goff - British Library, Head of British Collections 1501-1800

Dr Moira Goff will be outlining the Library's plans to add a digital copy of one of its First Folios to the Treasures in Full collection during 2008. This will be great opportunity for postgraduates to offer responses to this project - there will be plenty of time allocated for questions and discussion.

Free wine and nibbles will be served after the seminar.
