Proposals are now being accepted for “Shakespeare, The Elizabethans and
the Early Modern World.” Any and all aspects of culture from this time
period are encouraged. The emphasis is on the “Early Modern World.”
We are interested not only in the literature and drama but other art

those with an interest in areas such as Spanish Theatre and literature
before 1700 to make proposals.
