12th Annual Shakespeare Authorship Studies Conference

I would like to take the opportunity to encourage all members of Oberon as well as anyone interested in the Shakespeare Authorship Question to consider strongly joining me in attending the upcoming Shakespeare Authorship Studies Conference, to be held April 3-6 at Concordia College in Portland, Oregon.

Having attended the last five Conferences, I can honestly say that it is well worth the trip. All of the presentations are scholarly and incredibly interesting. The upcoming Conference should prove to be very memorable.

Highlights (for me at least) of the Conference will be the opportunity to hear Bertram Fields (author of Players: The Mysterious Identity of William Shakespeare) and Amy Freed (author of the play The Beard of Avon, which I believe will be performed at the College during the Conference). All of the favorite speakers from past Conferences will be there, as well as some interesting newcomers such as Peter Dawkins, a Baconian who nonetheless has much to say on Edward deVere as, at least, a principal part of "Shakespeare". Alex McNeil, current President of the Shakespeare Fellowship will be speaking as well as offering up another exciting round of "Oxfordian Jeopardy"

Full details on the Conference Agenda (as well as lots of other great information) can be found at www.authorshipstudies.org
