Proceedings of the “Shakespeare and His Contemporaries” Graduate Conference (available online)

March 5, 2013

BI Florence


The British Institute of Florence is pleased to announce the online publication of the first volume of Proceedings of the “Shakespeare and His Contemporaries” Graduate Conference, comprising papers chosen from the three conferences organised by the Institute in the period 2009-2011.

The Shakespeare Graduate Conferences – with the participation of scholars such as Prof. Emerito Alessandro Serpieri, Prof. Fernando Cioni, Prof.ssa Claudia Corti and Prof.ssa Paola Pugliatti of Florence University, of Prof. Keir Elam of Bologna University, and Prof.ssa Carla Dente of Pisa University, founding member of the Italian Association of Shakespearean and Early Modern Studies – were devised to allow young doctoral candidates at Italian universities, as well as those who have recently taken their doctorate, an opportunity to present their research to peers and professors.

The volume gathers together papers in English and Italian that in their variety of content and methodology reflect the current lively interest in Shakespearean studies in Italy: some concentrate on individual works by the great playwright while others address more general themes relating to the historico-cultural period.

Proceedings of the “Shakespeare and His Contemporaries” Graduate Conference is now available in pdf format on the Institute’s website at www.britishinstitute.it/en/library/harold-acton-library.asp.

The publication of the proceedings will be announced at the Cultural Programme on Wednesday 17 April 2013 and at the opening session of the Fifth edition of the Shakespeare Graduate Conference on Thursday 18 April 2013, during Shakespeare Week 2013.
