The 13th Annual Summer Seminar at the Shakespeare Authorship Research Centre (August 18 to 23) will focus on the Tudor Heir in the Shakespeare plays, i.e. looking at the instances in selected plays where issues of succession may be more about the current times (i.e. Elizabethan) than the actual historical period that a play purports to be about.


Following is the notice recently sent out by the Centre with details about the seminar and how to sign up:
