Call For Papers - Shakespeare

The Tenth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference
Registration is now open for the Tenth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference. We invite submissions from all postgraduate students with an interest in any aspect of Shakespeare or Renaissance studies. Each paper should be twenty minutes in length (approximately 3000 words). For registration purposes, we require only a 200 word abstract. The cost of the conference is ?50 for three days or ?20 per day.

The 'BritGrad' conference is run by graduates for graduates and in the past has welcomed students from a wide range of different countries including the UK, USA, Australia, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey, Serbia, and the Czech Republic. Held at The Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon, this conference provides an encouraging, friendly atmosphere in which to present a paper. It is a unique opportunity to take part in stimulating and exciting academic discussion in the hometown of Shakespeare and the RSC.

Professor Kate McLuskie (The University of Birmingham) and Professor Peter Holland (Notre Dame University) are already confirmed as keynote speakers and there will be more speakers confirmed shortly. For further information please visit the website www.shakespeare.bham.ac.uk/BritGrad or see the call for papers attached.

I'm chairing this conference and I'd just like to remind everyone that registration closes in a month. We have also confirmed Gary Taylor, Russell Jackson and Stanley Wells as plenary speakers. Also, please not that Peter Holland's affiliation is listed wrong in the above message it should read University of Notre Dame.
