The 9th Annual Edward de Vere Studies Conference Call for Papers

This international academic conference invites papers of approximately 30 - 45 minutes' reading length for presentation on topics that offer distinguished study and advanced understanding of Edward de Vere and the Shakespeare Authorship Question, with special attention dedicated to research that contributes to or challenges arguments and evidence that the Shakespeare canon was authored by Edward de Vere, 17th earl of Oxford and Lord Great Chamberlain of England.

Given the high number of applicants for speaking positions at the Edward de Vere Studies Conference, applications for presentation time are competitive. To apply for consideration for a place on the conference agenda, applicants should mail to the Conference Director, for reception by 6 December 2004, two hard copies of a proposed paper, accompanied by an annotated bibliography of all sources cited. In lieu of a complete paper, minimally necessary for consideration for placement on the agenda—absent a commissioned paper or invitation to speak—is the submission of two hard copies of a detailed abstract and annotated bibliography. A current CV or professional biography with a record of all publications and a history of conference presentations should accompany submissions of papers or abstracts. Candidates will be notified by mid-December if their proposals have been accepted.
