CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT
&
CALL FOR SEMINAR PROPOSALS

 

The 2011 spring conference of the German Shakespeare Society, organised in association with the European Shakespeare Research Association (ESRA), will take place between
28 April – 1 May 2011 in Weimar (Germany)

Dear members of ESRA, dear colleagues,
The Weimar conference is now only two and a half months away, and many of you will want to make their travel arrangements and registration payment.

Registration:

http://www.shakespeare-gesellschaft.de/en/conferences/upcoming/weimar-spring-2011/registration.html
Registration deadline: 31 March 2011

Payment

The standard mode of payment for the conference will be by IBAN bank transfer. There will, however, be a transfer fee. Please note that one of the criteria to keep the Weimar Conference fee as low as possible -- 70 € non-DSG members (only 30 € if you pay the 30 € DSG membership fee) -- was precisely to accommodate additional costs like the IBAN bank transfer fee. For individuals who have not succeeded in paying their Conference fee, the Conference staff accept cash at the door. Naturally, -- but please not whole seminars who just find this more convenient.

Travel information

TRAVEL BY AIR

Weimar may be reached by plane via the following airports:

In all instances of air travel, continue from the airport by train or by car.

The nearest airports, Erfurt and Leipzig, are serviced by very few direct flights. There are train connections (IC and ICE) from Frankfurt and Berlin airports (both approx. 2 1/2 hrs.).

For detailed information, see: http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en?ld=964&country=DEU&rt=1&newrequest=yes&&country=GBR%20

TRAVEL BY CAR

Requests for accommodation will be handled by the Weimar tourist office (http://www.weimar.de/nc/en/tourism/homepage/), which can place reservations not only with hotels but also with bed-and-breakfast-type places. These rooms are considerably cheaper than hotel accommodation and an excellent option for junior scholars who may be travelling on a budget.

Birgit Kosche at the Weimar office (office@shakespeare-gesellschaft.de) will be happy to help with any aspect of your travel arrangements.

Looking very much forward to seeing you in Weimar!

All best, Andreas Höfele
