CFP: Shakespeare FuturEd Conference in Sydney

April 19, 2018

Something sent over from Sydney:

Shakespeare FuturEd is an international conference exploring the nexus of Shakespeare Studies and Education to be held at the University of Sydney on Friday 1 – Saturday 2 February 2019.

We are seeking proposals for papers, panels and workshops that interrogate and experiment with new directions in Shakespeare pedagogy in theory and practice. We welcome proposals from primary and secondary teachers, tertiary educators, researchers, theatre practitioners, and anyone with an interest in Shakespeare and education.

What does Shakespeare education look like now? Where is it headed? What are its accepted norms and critical problems? How is it theorised? How does Shakespeare education manifest in institutions such as schools and universities? How is it performed by theatre companies and community organisations? How is it affected and transformed by digital, virtual and blended learning initiatives and contexts? What is the role played by collaborative educational projects and informal learning environments? How does present Shakespeare education—its theory, practice and needs—relate to imagined or experimental futures for education?

Ideas to consider:

  • Shakespeare: text, performance, adaptation; cultural capital, tradition, innovation; global, local, mandatory, optional, inevitable, valued

  • Education: primary, secondary, tertiary, community; English, Literary Studies, Drama, interdisciplinary, active approaches, collaboration; flipped classrooms, blended and online learning, virtual and augmented reality, gamification; open access, corporatisation, marketplace, cultural capital; standards, audit culture, professionalism; the future of education

  • Theory: purpose of education, philosophy, ethics, aesthetics, creativity; socialisation, democracy, freedom; historicism, formalism, presentism

  • Teacher: expert, professional, innovator; facilitator, curator, collaborator; instrument, practitioner, researcher

  • Student: learner, collaborator, player; consumer, client, authority

Please send 250 word proposals ( and a short biography) to: claire.hansen3@jcu.edu.au. CFP closes 31 October 2018.
