Arden of Faversham: Inclusions, Exclusions, Transactions

I very much wanted to go to this conference in Paris; however, a combination of unfortunate timing and logistics meant it was impractical, this time at least. However, I understand that this may be a prelude to future conferences on apocryphal plays, and by then (who knows?) I might have even had the chance to learn enough French to follow the other papers!

Papers as follows - I apologise for utilising Google Translator, but they sound fascinating:

Yves Peyre (Montpellier 3) "Ovid-like !" Writing Mythology in Arden of Faversham

Jean-Claude Mailhol (UVHC) Arden of Faversham: Tragedy of Negation and Inversion.

Guinle Francis (Lyon 2) "Arden Must Die!" Chronicle of an Inescapable Death

Anny Crunelle (West Paris) "Holy deeds to despites": a Pilgrimage of (dis)grace?

The Big Three

Three big conferences in 2011, all of which I'm hoping to attend, and which I thought I'd link to here.

The Shakespeare Association of Americain Seattle. Seminar registrations for this are now closed, but I did get an application in, so I'm waiting to hear if I've assigned to a seminar; and, if so, which one.

The World Shakespeare Congress in Prague. This one only comes around every five years, and I've been accepted, so looking forward to a week in a city I've always wanted to visit!

The British Shakespeare Association in Cambridge. This year's theme is Shakespeare: Sources and Adaptation. The theme is almost a little bit too relevant to my research interests, and I'm still trying to think how I can boil down my work to a paper. Interestingly, though, the CFP suggests paper presentations rather than seminar papers, which I have to say is my preferred format.

I've done a lot of things so far during this PhD, but international conferences are not one of them (apart from international conferences held in the UK, which I'm not counting). I find these big conferences difficult to pitch for, so hoping to make the most of all three.


I’m Peter Kirwan, a final year doctoral student in the English Department at Warwick, and this is my PhD blog.

Conferences, reviews, articles, thoughts and links relating to my interests in the Shakespeare apocrypha, early modern drama, authorship and performance.
