Probably the best way to understand the players, diversity and “brainpower” behind the Shakespeare authorship question is to attend one of several conferences that are held throughout the year. One of the best is coming up soon in Toronto.

North America’s two leading Oxfordian associations –the Shakespeare Fellowship and the Shakespeare Oxford Society — have announced that their 2013 Joint Conference will take place in Toronto, Canada from October 17 – 20, 2013 at the Metropolitan Hotel.

The Joint Conference, held with the support of the Theatre and Drama departments of York University and the University of Guelph, two major Canadian universities, will take as its theme: “Shakespeare and the Living Theatre.”

In addition to a variety of papers on related subjects, there will be a trip to Canada’s internationally-acclaimed Stratford Festival to see a production of “The Merchant of Venice” and meet the director Antoni Cimolino who is also the new artistic head of the festival.  The conference events will also include an open public debate on the authorship question and a screening of at least one new film about the authorship.
