The Twelfth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference

17-19 June 2010
The Shakespeare Institute, The University of Birmingham

Call for papers

We invite graduate students with interests in both Shakespearean and Renaissance
studies to join us for this occasion. The interdisciplinary 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. Undergraduate students
in their final two years of study are also invited to attend the conference as auditors.

The conference will feature Shakespeare and Renaissance scholars Jonathan Bate
(University of Warwick), Eric Rasmussen (University of Nevada, Reno), David
Bevington (University of Chicago), and Emma Smith (Hertford College, Oxford). There
will also be the opportunity to attend the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of
King Lear!

Papers should be approximately twenty minutes long (3,000 words or less). Delegates
wishing to give papers must register by Friday 30th April 2010, sending in an abstract of approximately 200 words via email. We encourage early registration to ensure a place on the conference programme.
Please look at the website for more information about the event, including downloadable registration forms, plenary speakers, location and accommodation.
