Call for Papers: The Fortune Theatre Symposium

Shakespeare's Globe, 4 November 2006

Globe Education invites abstracts for short papers for inclusion in a one-day symposium on the Fortune Theatre to be held at Shakespeare's Globe. Papers may offer insights and new ideas about any aspect of the Fortune theatre including: its design, architectural features, contract, repertory and audience.

The symposium would also welcome papers concerning the relationship between the Fortune and the Globe and other theatres of the time, as well as the Fortune's overall significance and place in Renaissance theatre history.

The symposium will form part of a series of autumn events exploring the Fortune theatre, including a Shakespeare Globe Theatre History Seminar led by Professor Susan Cerasano (Colgate University), a Lecture by Jerzy Limon on rebuilding the Fortune in Gdansk, and Read Not Dead readings of Fortune plays, including Dekker's The Roaring Girl.

The deadline for submissions is 15 October 2006. All submissions must include:
* Author's professional title and name
* College/university affiliation
* Email address
* Mailing address
* Phone number

Please send a 250 word (approx.) abstract of the paper to:
