BSA Session: Shakespeare's Next Editors (abstracts by 31 May 2009)

full name / name of organization: 
British Shakespeare Association
contact email: 
mpangall@english.umass.edu

This is particularly unfortunate given the exponential increase in innovative technologies, methodologies, and theories that encourage fresh approaches to essential questions about these plays.
