CFP: Summer Shaw Symposium (5/1/2013; 7/26-28/2013)
The 10th Annual Summer Shaw Symposium on July 26-28, 2013, co-hosted with the International Shaw Society by the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, invites proposals for papers to be submitted to Professor Brad Kent at Brad.Kent@lit.ulaval.ca for 20-minute presentations. The ISS and the Shaw Festival also offer a combination Travel Grant/Bryden Scholarship for Emerging Scholars that provides free accommodation for the three days of the symposium, free registration, and some help with paying for travel. Most papers will probably be on the two Shaw plays offered at the Festival, Major Barbara and an adaptation of Geneva, or on comparisons of those two plays with other plays offered by the Festival (see www.shawfest.com), but other topics will be considered. Registration for the symposium includes tickets for the two plays.
The deadline for submitting an abstract is May 1, 2013, and the same deadline applies to applications for the Grant/Scholarship. There is much more information at http://www.shawsociety.org/SummerSymposium-2013.htm. Send queries to Brad.Kent@lit.ulaval.ca and copy the ISS President Michael O'Hara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
