We invite graduate students with interests in Shakespeare, Renaissance, and Early Modern Studies to submit paper proposals for the Eighteenth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘400 Years and Counting: Celebrating Early Modern Drama’, tying into the 2016 anniversary celebrations. In accordance with the Shakespeare Institute’s emerging reputation as a place for creative criticism, we also encourage creative responses. Undergraduate students in their final two years of study are invited to attend the conference as auditors (non-speakers).
We invite abstracts of up to 200 words proposing papers twenty minutes in length on subjects relating to Shakespeare, Early Modern, and/or Renaissance Studies. More creative forms of criticism, such as original writing or performance, may also be submitted, also requiring a 200-word abstract. We welcome papers from a wide variety of disciplines, from literature to art and cultural history and beyond.
