Shakespeare at Kalamazoo is accepting abstracts for two panels at the 51st International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan (May 12-15, 2016). Our panels this year are partly designed around a program to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in 1616.
The first panel is "Shakespeare at 400: Present and Future." We are looking for papers that explore what Shakespeare means today and potential future meanings. This can include pedagogical approaches, popular culture, adaptations, scholarly and biographical debates, and so on. As part of our anniversary programming, we look forward to a broad-based set of panels and discussion.
