         The International Shaw Society announces an International
Bernard Shaw Conference, which will be co-hosted by Brown University
in Providence, Rhode Island, June 8-11, 2006, Asa Messer Emeritus
Professor Don Wilmeth presiding.
TOPICS: Papers (for twenty minute talks) may be on a wide range of
topics and written from any critical perspective but may speak, in
acknowledgment of Shaw's impending 150th birthday, of his longevity
as a canonical author and challenges to that, of the contributions he
and his works have made to a wide range of cultural fields, including
the theater of course, of whatever problematics he and his works
anticipated and/or exemplify, and in answer to the question of
whether Shaw still speaks to the contemporary world. ABSTRACTS of
300-500 words, accompanied by a c.v. and cover letter, should be sent
to Professor Richard Dietrich, preferably as an attachment to an
email sent to dietrich_at_cas.usf.edu but otherwise to R. F. Dietrich,
