The 3rd Annual Institute of Oxfordian Studies Summer Seminar

The Institute of Oxfordian Studies convenes a week-long seminar on the Concordia University campus each August to enable registrants the opportunity for close study of the Shakespeare Authorship Question and the Oxfordian Authorship Thesis. The principal topic for 2004 will be "Prince Tudor: Truth or Delusion?"

Equal time will be given to advocates for and against the Prince Tudor thesis. Leading the advocacy for Prince Tudor will be author and actor Hank Whittemore; leading the opposition to the Prince Tudor thesis will be retired statistician Dr John Varady.

The cost of $995 per registrant for the six-day seminar includes housing (double-occupancy) on the CU campus, linen service, all breakfasts and lunches, instructional costs, books, classroom supplies and the cost of all day trips (former trips have included trips to Portland's Japanese Gardens and Chinese Gardens, attendance at an outdoor performance of a Shakespeare play, a Saturday picnic lunch, and a luncheon cruise on the Willamette River aboard the yacht, The Portland Spirit).

To register, send a check payable to the Edward de Vere Studies Conference, Concordia University, 2811 NE Holman, Portland, OR 97211-6099 with a note indicating that you wish to be a part of the 2004 Institute for Oxfordian Studies summer seminar to convene from 8 - 13 August 2004.
