2012 SF/SOS joint conference will be held Oct. 18-21 in Pasadena; RFP deadline July 15, 2012


Shakespeare Fellowship President Earl Showerman announced today that the eighth annual Shakespeare Authorship Conference, jointly sponsored by the Shakespeare Fellowship and the Shakespeare-Oxford Society, will be held October 18-21, 2012 at the Old Town Pasadena Courtyard by Marriott in Pasadena, California where they have secured a block of rooms and conference facilities. For reservations, call 888-236-2427

Showerman said:

Proposals for conference papers are now being accepted. The sponsoring organizations are both dedicated to academic excellence, and guidelines for presentation of papers for the joint conferences are available on-line or from the members of the program committee: Bonner Cutting, John Hamill, or Earl Showerman (addresses below). First-time presenters should consult the guidelines before submitting a proposal. Paper proposals should be accompanied by an abstract of not more than 250 words and a brief biography.

To submit a proposal contact: Bonner Cutting: jandbcutting@comcast.net , John Hamill: hamillx@pacbell.net or Earl Showerman: earlees@charter.net . The deadline for submissions is July 15, 2012.

The conference committee will be sending out updates as our program comes together. The Pasadena theatre company, A Noise Within will have a fall program in production during the authorship conference. Last fall the company produced Twelfth Night and this spring Antony and Cleopatra will be in production.  Their fall schedule will be released by June 1 at which time a group order will be secured, if the production contributes to the goals of the conference.
