The Wooden O Symposium is a cross disciplinary conference exploring
Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern Studies through the text and
performance of Shakespeare’s plays. Scholars from all disciplines are
encouraged to submit papers that offer insights and new ideas springing
from the era and works of William Shakespeare.

Papers are accepted from professional scholars, graduate students, and
undergraduates. All submissions are subject to the same academic peer
review process.
Conference Priorities
The Wooden O Symposium is hosted by Southern Utah University, home of the
Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespearean Festival, which will be presenting
Two Gentlemen of Verona, Othello, and Taming of the Shrew as part of its
summer 2008 season. Priority for papers/presentations at the conference
will be given to research relating to one or more of these specific works.
 Scholars attending the conference will have the unique opportunity of
immersing themselves in research, text, and performance in one of the most
beautiful natural settings in the western U.S.

Selected papers from the symposium are published in the peer-reviewed
Journal of the Wooden O Symposium.

Submissions are accepted through email or post. All submissions must
include the author’s name, mailing address, email address,
college/university affiliation, submission type (academic, graduate,
undergraduate) and daytime phone number. The deadline for submissions is
