The Third British Shakespeare Association Conference

Interpreting Shakespeare: the director, the actor, the editor, the teacher, the critic

The CAPITAL Centre, University of Warwick (UK) 31 August - 2 September 2007

CFP: Nineteenth-Century Shakespeare

In the nineteenth century, Shakespeare attained unprecedented circulation. On the stage, aquatic and equestrian spectacles vied with antiquarian and original practices productions. On the page, inexpensive editions and articles in the penny press disseminated knowledge of Shakespeare to a general readership while scholars and critics discovered (and invented) facts about his life and works. Papers are invited on any aspect of nineteenth-century Shakespeare (popular or elite, national or international, page or stage). Those interested in contributing to this seminar should submit abstracts of 150-200 words to the seminar leader for consideration by 4 June 2007. The deadline for completion and pre-circulation of accepted papers will be 30 July. All delegates are invited to register for any seminar, and auditors will be welcome at all seminars.

To submit an abstract, or for more information, please contact the seminar leader Kathryn Prince at k.prince@english.bbk.ac.uk or visit the conference website at http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/cross_fac/capital/bsa/
