Société française Shakespeare call for program proposals

SHAKESPEARE 450 : Call for program proposals
21-27 April 2014, Paris

The Société française Shakespeare is organizing in Paris a week-long
conference from 21-27 April 2014 to coincide with the 450th anniversary
of Shakespeare’s birth. The program will include plenary lectures,
roundtables, workshops, seminars, panels, along with performances at
various venues, theatres, concert halls, museums, libraries, artists’
studios and bookshops.

The conference is backed by a large number of French and international
institutions and organizations.

The international organizing committee welcomes seminar, workshop or
panel proposals on all aspects of Shakespeare’s works, their reflections
in painting, sculpture, opera, on radio and screen, as well as issues of
performance, critical theory, poetics, commemorations, textual and
scenic rewritings, translation, biography.

For 2014, panel proposals will welcome up to four papers per session.
Panels may extend for more than one session. Workshop and
seminar/roundtable proposals may include more participants; it is up to
the organizers to determine their precise form (open discussion,
position papers followed by a roundtable discussion, etc.).

Panel, seminar and workshop proposals should include:
– name and university affiliation of proposed leader(s);
– title of panel, seminar or workshop;
– a 500–750 word description stating topic, relevance and approach;
– a 5-line bio of each seminar leader including their email address(es).

    Dear Comittee,

    please let us know how to contact you. I would happily take part at your conference if I am accepted. Unfortunately, I can not get access to you (the E-mail address is not valid). The title of my proposal would be, ‘Hidden and Explicit Sexual Symbols in Hamlet, King of Denmark.’
    Yours faithfully,
