The Wooden O Symposium is a cross-disciplinary Shakespeare Studies conference sponsored by Southern Utah University's Center for Shakespeare Studies and the Utah Shakespeare Festival. It is scheduled for Aug 12-14, 2013, in Cedar City, Utah. Scholars attending the conference will have the unique opportunity of immersing themselves in research and performance in one of the most beautiful natural settings in the western United States. 

Conference Priorities: The Wooden O Symposium invites papers on any topic related to Shakespeare, including Shakespeare in performance, the adaptation of Shakespeare works (film, fiction, and visual and performing arts), Elizabethan and Jacobean culture and history, and Shakespeare's contemporaries, but gives priority to presentations relating to the Utah Shakespeare Festival's 2013 season: King John, Love's Labour's Lost and The Tempest.

In support of Southern Utah University's mission to promote undergraduate research, the Wooden O Symposium regularly includes undergraduate panels as part of our program, so please share this notice with your undergraduates.

We will also invite presenters to submit revised papers from the 2012 symposium to our peer-reviewed Journal of the Wooden O.
