International Conference
18-20 December 2008: Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India

The Centre of Advanced Study. Department of English, Jadavpur University, in association with the Shakespeare Association of America, invites abstracts of papers for an International Conference on 'The Politics of Shakespeare', to be held on 18-20 December 2008. The purpose of the partnership is to open new Shakespearean exchanges between West and East.

The conference will cover both political themes and concerns in Shakespeare's own plays, and the political implications (in the widest sense) of the study, staging and reception of Shakespeare. Abstracts (maximum of 500 words) are invited for presentations in half-hour slots, affording 20 minutes paper-reading time plus ten minutes for questions and discussion.

Details of plenary sessions and a proposed panel discussion will be announced later.

We regret that we cannot offer travel assistance, but will provide hospitality over the days of the conference to a number of participants. The support of the Shakespeare Association of America is gratefully acknowledged.

Email abstracts by 30 August 2008 for responses by 15 September 2008, to the conference directors:

Amlan Das Gupta,
