The British Institute of Florence holds in April 2014 the 6th Shakespeare Graduate Conference. This is an interdisciplinary and bilingual forum for PhD students where they can present and discuss their research work. Last year the first online volume of the Proceedings of the Shakespeare Graduate Conference was published on the British Institute website. The topic this year will be Shakespeare and His Contemporaries: Forms of Nationhood and the deadline for proposals is Wednesday 30th October. Here is the call for papers.
