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
. Hillary Nunn, University of Akron, email@example.com and
. Timothy Francisco, Youngstown State University firstname.lastname@example.org
