Michigan contingent to participate in 2011 SF/SOS annual conference in DC

Shakespeare Fellowship President Earl Showerman reported on the 2011 Shakespeare Fellowship/Shakespeare Oxford Society Joint Conference to be held Oct. 13-16, 2011 at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, DC. From Showerman's report it looks like Michigan will have quite a contingent at the conference. In addition to SOS President Richard Joyrich and SOS board member Susan Grimes Width who plan to attend, Oberon Chair Tom Hunter and Oberon Treasurer Tom Townsend have indicated they will submit proposals as well as well-known Michigan authorship researcher, Barbara Burris. Showerman said:
The program committee for the 2011 joint authorship conference in Washington, DC is still accepting paper proposals. The newly-minted conference registration forms for the Shakespeare Fellowship and Shakespeare Oxford Society are attached (below). The conference will take place October 13-16 at the Washington Court Hotel and a block of rooms have been set aside at a discounted rate. Hotel contact information is on the registration forms. The program will include a tour of the Folger Shakespeare Library with a viewing of Oxford’s Geneva Bible, and a possible trip to a local Cineplex for a group viewing of Anonymous.  Speakers who have already made proposals or signaled their intent to speak include Mark Anderson, Roger Stritmatter, Bonner Cutting, Gerit Quealy, Richard Waugaman, Ron Hess, Barbara Burris, Cheryl Eagan-Donovan, Tom Hunter, Tom Townsend, Albert Burgstahler and myself.
