Shakespeare 450

Seminar leader: Michael Dobson (Shakespeare Institute, Birmingham).

This seminar is part of the Shakespeare 450 conference. Paris, April 21-27, 2014.

This seminar welcomes short papers (up to 3,000 words) on the ways in which festivals, anniversaries and other public celebrations of Shakespeare's achievements have required or prompted particular accounts of who Shakespeare was. Which versions of Mr William Shakespeare have great civic and international occasions preferred? Have these periodic attempts to interest a larger public in Shakespeare been valuable stimulants to the study of his life, or regrettable fountains of hearsay?
