First Notice


March 25-27, 1993

The Ohio Shakespeare Conference for 1993 will be held in Cleveland OH and
hosted jointly by Case Western Reserve Univeristy and Cleveland State
University. The topic for the conference will be:

"There the Whole Palace Open'd": Court and Society in Jacobean England

This will be an interdisciplinary conference drawing on the work of literary
scholars, historians, art historians and musicologists. The central topic is
the court of King James: its structure; organization; political, social and
aesthetic tastes; impact on local and wider English histories. In pursuing
the court's images and accounts of itself, the conference will include a
full-scale, historically informed reconstruction of the masque

"Oberon, the Faery Prince"

by Ben Jonson, Inigo Jones, Robert Jones and others. Consideration of Oberon
as an instance of Jacobean court culture will include a discussion of the
production with the professional artists involved: stage director,
choreographer and music director.

Plenary speakers at the conference will be:

Prof. Leeds Barroll, University of Maryland

Prof. Peter Holman, University of Essex

Prof. Fritz Levy, University of Washington

Prof. Annabel Patterson, Duke University
