Shakespeare’s Spaces

A two-day colloquium to conclude the 2010 Australian Shakespeare Festival at the University of Tasmania, Hobart
August 28-29 2010

Plenary Speakers
Emeritus Professor Michael Neill (University of Auckland)
Professor Stephen Orgel (Stanford University)
Professor Tiffany Stern (Oxford University)

Call for papers
The theme of this colloquium is designed to complement the new national Australian Shakespeare Festival. Held in a location Shakespeare and his contemporaries could hardly imagine: a city within a “South Sea of discovery,” Shakespeare's Spaces encourages you to think about Shakespeare's attitude to locality and localities, large and small. Ranging from the representation of locale within the plays, to playing spaces past and present, to location – including different media(s) – and its bearing on production, participants are invited to explore Shakespeare’s places and spaces as physical or intellectual locations in the present, in the past, or in ‘a world elsewhere’.

Proposals for 20 minute papers should be submitted for consideration by the programme panel by May 30th 2010, sent to conservatorium.admin@utas.edu.au

Registration will be via the Shakespeare Festival Website at www.AustralianShakespeareFestival.com from March 31st, 2010.
