Subject: SHAKSPER Has Moved to Bowie State University

On January 4, 1996. SHAKSPER -- The Electronic Shakespeare Conference --
migrated from the University of Toronto, where it was founded in July 1990, to
Bowie State University, the home institution of its owner/editor/moderator --
Hardy M. Cook <HMCook@boe00.minc.umd.edu>.

SHAKSPER is the international electronic conference for Shakespearean
researchers, instructors, students, and those who share their academic
interests and concerns. It currently includes more than 1100 SHAKSPEReans
(many of whom are prominent in the field), from Australia, Austria, Belgium,
Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain,
Greece, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, The Netherlands, New
Zealand, Norway, Poland, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland,
Turkey, and the United States.

Like the national and international Shakespeare Association conferences,
SHAKSPER offers announcements and bulletins, scholarly papers, and the formal
exchange of ideas -- but SHAKSPER also offers on-going opportunities for
spontaneous informal discussion, eavesdropping, peer review, and a sense of
worldwide scholarly community. In addition, the SHAKSPER Fileserver offers
conference papers and abstracts, an International Directory of Shakespeare
Institutes, biographies of conference members, and a variety of announcements,
texts, and bibliographies.

The daily SHAKSPER digests are organized by subject for the reader's
convenience. SHAKSPER digests include conference announcements, member notes
and queries, book and theatre reviews, textual debate, discussion of lecture
strategies, and much more.

No academic qualifications are required for membership in SHAKSPER, and anyone
interested in English Literature, the Renaissance, or Drama is welcome to join
us. Write to the editor or send a one-line e-mail message, reading "SUB
