British Graduate Shakespeare Conference

The Eighth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference

The Shakespeare Institute holds its eighth annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference this year, from 15 - 17 June 2006. We invite all graduates of Shakespearean and Renaissance studies to join us for this occasion. The conference provides a stimulating academic forum in which graduate students from all over the world can present their research, and meet together in an active centre of Shakespearean research and theatre: Shakespeare's home town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Our previous conferences have attracted scholars from all over the world, and we wish to sustain the mutually enriching diversity in research interests, disciplines and critical approaches that has characterized the conference in the past years. Undergraduate students in their final two years of study are also invited to attend the conference as auditors.

Professor Kate McLuskie, the Director of the Shakespeare Institute, will open the conference, and Dr. Catherine Alexander will be one of our guest speakers. Dr. Paul Edmondson from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust will also be presenting research in relation to Shakespeare's Sonnets (co-authored with Stanley Wells), and Sarah Stanton from Cambridge University Press will be speaking on academic publication. In between three days of postgraduate panel sessions, delegates will also be able to explore the beautiful and historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, and have the opportunity to attend a performance of Yukio Ninagawa's Titus Andronicus, hosted by the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of their ground-breaking 'Complete Works' season. There will also be the opportunity to take advantage of the Shakespeare Centre Library and RSC archives, as well as the outstanding resources of the Shakespeare Institute Library.

Papers should be approximately twenty minutes long (3,000 words or less). Delegates wishing to give papers must register by Friday, 21st April 2006. We encourage early registration to ensure a place on the conference programme.
