Extended CFP on this year’s ANZSA conference

CFP deadline 1 September, conference November 17-19.

“Shakespeare at the Edges”

The Australian and New Zealand Shakespeare Association holds a conference every two years. In 2016 this is taking place at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Those who are still deciding whether to make the trip over the pond in November now have an extra few weeks to submit a proposal for a presentation.

The final call for papers for ANZSA2016: Shakespeare at the Edges will now be Thursday September 1. Abstracts submitted before the final date will be considered and the proposers notified progressively.

From the website:

“The Conference will feature plenary and panel sessions, live performance and film screenings. Conference highlights include keynote addresses by Douglas Bruster (Shakespeare and the Question of Culture, 2003, and Shakespeare and the Power of Performance, 2008 with Robert Weimann); Lisa Hopkins (Shakespeare on the Edge, 2005, and Renaissance Drama on the Edge, 2014); a special performance for delegates of Regan Taylor’s commedia-inspired Maori adaptation: Solothello; delegates will be able to attend Carving in Ice’s production of Love’s Labour’s Lost in the playhouse on the University Campus. Seats will be reserved for Friday November 18. The Conference dinner wil be at the Green Dragon Pub, Hobbiton, 45 minutes drive from the University of Waikato.”

You have to credit the allure of an academic conference that holds its official dinner in Hobbiton.
