CFP: Shakespeare, Performance, Place

September 22, 2012

2-3 November 2012 

Call for Papers

 

 

This two-day conference investigates Shakespearean performance and its relationship to place, location and geography. The themes are chosen to coincide with the first Shakespearean production to be staged at Belfast’s new Lyric Theatre and performance is defined broadly to encompass theatrical event, film, television and mass media. Plenary speakers include Dr Patrick Lonergan (Galway), Dr Lucy Munro (Keele), Prof. Stuart Hampton-Reeves (University of Central Lancashire) and Prof. Mark Thornton Burnett (QUB). The conference is a collaboration between the School of English, Queen’s University, the British Shakespeare Association and the Irish Renaissance Seminar. The conference fee is £30, which includes a tour of the new Lyric Theatre, a ticket to see Macbeth (directed by Lynne Parker), a new Shakespeare film showing, coffee, lunches and reception.

If you are interested in offering a paper or just attending the conference please contact Dr Ramona Wray before 28 September 2012. A number of postgraduate bursaries have been generously provided by the BSA – again please contact Dr Ramona Wray for details.
