THE EIGHTH ANNUAL BRITISH GRADUATE SHAKESPEARE CONFERENCE
Begins June 15, 2006, Ends June 17, 2006
Stratford-upon-Avon, England – http://www.shakespeare.bham.ac.uk/britgrad2006

The Eighth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference is a postgraduate forum run by students, for students, in which delegates from all over the world can present their research on Shakespeare and early modern drama in a friendly but academic environment. We welcome papers from all fields of research related to Shakespeare, the work of his contemporaries, conditions of the production and reception of Renaissance drama, performance and textual studies, and adaptations in theatre, film and music over the centuries. Our commitment to diversity and the exploration of a wide range of topics and approaches has been reflected in previous years by the attendance of delegates from all over the world, creating a compelling and refreshing research environment.

All graduate students are invited to give a paper at the conference, lasting approximately twenty minutes. Undergraduate students in their last two years of study are also invited and welcomed to the conference as auditors, and all delegates will have the opportunity to take advantage of the outstanding resources of Stratford-upon-Avon as a centre of Shakespearean research, including the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, and the Shakespeare Institute Library.

ESTRANGED REALITIES
Begins June 29, 2006, Ends June 30, 2006
Newport, England – http://artschool.newport.ac.uk

A one-day conference organised by and for postgraduate students. Its aim is to provide a forum for discussion of diverse aspects of representational practices as produced by photography and film (including digital manifestations). In hiding the conditions of its production, film and photography have been able to simultaneously produce ‘otherness’ and difference whilst also allowing for imaginative and subjective interventions into realist discourses. Whether as a vehicle for producing knowledge (however subjective or partial) or intervening in the production of reality, photography and film provide rich breeding grounds for discussions on the estrangement of the medium from itself and the medium from its subject.

The conference fee will be £20, including refreshments and lunch. Concessions available. Please contact the conference organisers as listed below. The day is expected to run from 09.30 to 17.30
