Local/Global Shakespeares

King’s College London & Shakespeare’s Globe

11 – 13 September 2009
4th British Shakespeare Association Conference
BSA 2009 is a high-profile, international conference co-hosted by the English Department at King’s College London and Shakespeare’s Globe.
BSA 2009 invites scholars, theatre practitioners, educators and members of the public to reflect on the following key issues:
1. the place of Shakespeare in contemporary debates about origin, authenticity and national identities
2. the role of Shakespeare in fostering productive exchanges between communities and cultures
3. the role of Shakespeare in contemporary performance theories and practices
4. the place of Shakespeare in contemporary accounts and uses of the past (past practices – theatrical and textual – and histories about the past)
5. the place of Shakespeare in secondary and tertiary education, in the UK and beyond
6. the place of Shakespeare within cultural and creative industries in present-day London and worldwide
BSA 2009 seeks to facilitate a dialogue and an exchange of expertise among scholars, educators and theatre practitioners who routinely use Shakespeare on stage, on the page and in the classroom.
For online booking, see the Registration page (left menu).

Please note that the conference will be split site on Saturday, 12 September, and Sunday, 13 September; delegates will have to make their own way to both venues (Strand Campus, King's College London and Shakespeare's Globe, Bankside).
BSA 2009 is hosted by King's College London, Shakespeare's Globe and the British Shakespeare Assocation, with support from King's Alumni Development Fund and LCACE.
