We invite paper, session, and workshop proposals for the inaugural Shakespearean Theatre Conference, to be held June 18-20, 2015, in Stratford, Ontario. Both text-based and performance-based approaches to language in Tudor-Stuart drama are welcome, and we especially encourage proposals that explore the relationship between text and performance.

Plenary speakers:
Joel Altman (University of California, Berkeley)
Antoni Cimolino (Artistic Director, Stratford Festival)
Russell Jackson (University of Birmingham)
Lynne Magnusson (University of Toronto)

The conference is a joint venture of the University of Waterloo and the Stratford Festival, and will bring together scholars and practitioners to talk about how performance influences scholarship and vice versa. Paper sessions will be held at the University of Waterloo’s Stratford campus, with plays and special events hosted by the Stratford Festival. For updated information, visit http://www.stratfordfestival.ca/education/resources.aspx?id=28325.

By January 31, 2015, please send proposals to k2graham@uwaterloo.ca.
