Steve Connors’ (English) paper “Shakespeare’s Lonely Children” took one of the two first prizes at the 2013 Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference held recently at Holy Cross. Joseph Gullekson (English) also presented his paper “Reconsidering Gertrude: An Adaptation of an Adaptable Queen.”
Their papers were chosen for the conference competitively; two of only 18 papers were selected from nearly 40 submissions. Both papers were sponsored by Sharon Yang and James Foley (English).
This was the 12th consecutive Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference, held each year at a different Worcester Consortium college. The conference brings in students from institutions from across New England, sometimes even from across the country and Canada.
WSU hosted the conference in 2008 and will doing so again in April of 2014.
