"The state of the field in Hungarian Shakespeare Studies"


Shakespeare Conference

Interface Shakespeare

We are inviting academics, teachers, translators, artists, theatre practitioners as well as PhD and MA level students of Shakespeare-related subjects to participate at our nineth biennial Shakespeare conference in Szeged, between 19-21 September 2024.

Following our tradition, we would like to facilitate discussions that help individuals in shaping their projects, and we would also like to offer ground for our community to think and talk about the problems we have to tackle in an academic environment facing new challenges. There are diverse ways in which you can participate: presenting a 20-minute conference paper, presenting a project in 20 minutes, or registering as an auditing participant. We especially appreciate and encourage project presentations, recommended primarily for PhD students or scholars who would like to share the outlines of larger projects, including their dilemmas and questions.

The thematic title of the conference this year is "Interface Shakespeare" – we would like to offer participants an opportunity to exchange ideas about the ways in which Shakespeare and early modern studies can facilitate inter- and transdisciplinary dialogues among various scientific fields and traditions, with a special emphasis on the concept of the public humanities in the service of individual and global well-being. Panels will be organized into English and Hungarian sessions, so contributions may be submitted and presented in either of these languages, but we encourage presentations in English. It is not necessary to address the overarching topic, any work related to Shakespeare-studies is welcome.

Think of the way in which you would like to contribute to this conference, fill in the registration sheet at this link and submit by June 30. Please consider that a written version of the planned presentations or projects should be sent prior to the conference, by September 1st, so that respondents also have time to prepare.

Board members of the Hungarian Shakespeare Association will be present at the conference. Invited foreign guests include: Maria Sequeria Mendes (University of Lisbon), Douglas Lanier (University of New Hampshire), Paola Spinozzi (University of Ferrara), Zenón Luis-Martínez (University of Huelva), Fernando Cioni (University of Florence), Antoine Ertlé (University of Bordeaux).

Looking forward to your application and meeting you in Szeged: Attila Kiss and Ágnes Matuska, organizers.
