The conference's topic will be 'dramatic story-telling: myths and fairy tales in Shakespeare'. We invite contributions that discuss the purposes for which Shakespeare makes use of myths and fairy tales, his methods of 'narrating' such stories in the medium of drama, the effects of source materials of this kind on the plots, characters and language of the plays, the afterlife of the mythic and supernatural elements of Shakespeare's plays throughout the centuries in stage productions, films, the visual arts etc. Manuscripts (about 5000 words) should be sent to the 'Gesamtredaktion' of the Shakespeare-Jahrbuch in Munich. For detailed and up-to date information please consult the homepage of the Shakespeare-Gesellschaft.
