Appropriating Shakespeare
October 11-13, 2007
The University of Akron

Our joint theme-focused conference aims to explore the ways that Shakespeare and other early modern writers invoke sources, both literary and cultural, to create meanings for their original audiences, as well as how these early modern works have been appropriated for use in later eras.

Submission Deadline: August 15, 2007
