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?

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.
