SAT convenes at The Globe this Sunday


This information about the 2013 SAT Conference in London, England is available from their web site at: http://www.shakespeareanauthorshiptrust.org.uk/index.htm. LT


Shakespearean Authorship Trust Conference 2013 - Sunday 24 November 2013


The Shakespearean Authorship Trust, in collaboration with Brunel University, presents Much Ado About Italy.

Our conference this year will challenge the assumption among orthodox scholars that Shakespeare was no true traveller. Topics covered will include the Author’s familiarity with Italian literature and the arts - including Roger Prior’s remarkable discovery of the Bassano frescos - and a presentation of the extensive researches of Richard Paul Roe in his landmark bookThe Shakespeare Guide to Italy - Retracing the Bard's Unknown Travels.

Speakers:
Ros Barber (The Marlowe Papers and Shakespeare: the Evidence)
Julia Cleave (Trustee of the SAT)
Kevin Gilvary (Dating Shakespeare’s Plays, De Vere Society Chairman)
Jenny Tiramani (Theatre Designer and Costume Historian)
Alexander Waugh (Shakespeare Beyond Doubt?)
Hank Whittemore (The Monument, Associate of the SAT)

Members of the panel forum will also include advocates for Francis Bacon (Peter Dawkins The Shakespeare Enigma) and Henry Neville (John Casson Much Ado About Noting).
