The Wooden O Symposium is a cross disciplinary conference exploring Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern Studies, through the text and performance of Shakespeare’s plays. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to submit papers that offer insights and new ideas springing from the era of William Shakespeare. His plays are replete with the language, thoughts and arts of the Renaissance and Western culture and represent an inexhaustible source for creative ideas and research.

Conference Priorities - The Wooden O Symposium is hosted by Southern Utah University, home of the Tony Award- winning Utah Shakespearean Festival, which will be presenting Romeo and Juliet, Love's Labour's Lost, A Midsummer's Night Dream and Dr. Faustus by Christopher Marlowe during its summer 2005 season. Priority for papers/ presentations at the conference will be given to research relating to one or more of these specific works. The Adams Memorial Theatre is a unique outdoor perfomance space designed to reflect Shakespeare's own "wooden O." Conference participants will have the unique opportunity of immersing themselves in research, text and performance in one of the most beautiful natural settings in the western U.S.

Papers - Papers are accepted from academic scholars, graduate students, undergraduates, and aficionados. All submissions are subject to the same academic peer review process.
