Papers on any of the works of William Shakespeare are invited for presentation at the eighteenth annual California State University Shakespeare Symposium, to be held on the campus of California State University at Fullerton, on Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8, 2010. Submissions are particularly encouraged from current and former faculty, instructors, and students of any California State University campus. Papers must be no longer than 20 minutes of reading time and are to be submitted, via e-mail attachment in MSWord or Word-compatible, please, to Symposium Co-ordinator Prof. Kay Stanton, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions will be Monday, April 19, 2010. Registration cost will be $15 in advance, or $20 on site, which will include, as the Symposium luncheon, a Shakespeare Tea, hosted by the As You Like Shakespeare Society. The date of the Symposium has been set to coincide with the last performance dates of CSU Fullerton’s production of Romeo and Juliet, and, schedule permitting, the director and/or some of the actors may be able to address our Symposium. There will be performances at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, May 7 and Saturday, May 8, as well as a 2:00 p.m. matinee on Saturday, May 8. Ticket prices are $9-$10, and we hope that many Symposium participants and attendees will attend one of the performances. The Symposium will also feature a presentation by Guest Speaker Louise Sorel, acclaimed actress of stage, screen, and television.
