Call for Papers
BritGrad 2013 CFP
We invite graduate students with interests in both Shakespeare and Renaissance studies to join us in June for the Fifteenth Annual British Graduate Conference.
The interdisciplinary conference, celebrating its fifteenth anniversary in 2013, provides a friendly but stimulating academic forum in which graduate students from all over the world can present their research and meet together in an active centre of Shakespeare scholarship: 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 talks by Martin Wiggins (The Shakespeare Institute) & Catherine Richardson (University of Kent), Jonathan Slinger (RSC), and Mairi Macdonald (Shakespeare Birthplace Trust), among other plenary speakers. Delegates also have the opportunity to attend the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Hamlet, directed by David Farr and starring Jonathan Slinger, at a group-booking price. Lunch will be provided on each day, and we will be hosting a dance and a drinks reception for the delegates.
We invite abstracts of approximately 200 words for papers twenty minutes in length (3,000 words or less) on subjects relating to Shakespeare and/or Renaissance studies. Delegates wishing to give papers must register by Thursday 25 April; auditors must register by Thursday 23 May. Due to the growing success of this annual conference, we strongly encourage early registration to ensure a place on the conference programme.
