CFP: “Shaw at Home” – G. B. Shaw Conference in UK, June 17-22, 2013.

Deadline Feb.15, 2013.

“Shaw at Home,” a conference of international scholars, which will take place mostly in the village of Ayot St. Lawrence north of London, reminds us that “Shaw’s Corner” in Ayot was the Shaws’ home longer, 44 years, than any other residence. “Shaw’s Corner” is now maintained partly as a museum and as the stage for annual productions of Shaw’s plays on the back lawn. The Shaws also had several residences in London, of course, and the conference will spend a day in London touring Shavian sites there, starting at the London School of Economics. The Keynote Address will be by Sir Michael Holroyd. Paper topics are open, but of course papers that relate Shaw’s work and life to his residences would be especially welcome, as would papers on the two Shaw plays that will be provided by Michael Friend Productions: Buoyant Billions andGeneva. The deadline for submission of paper abstracts and travel grant applications is February 15, 2013 (please send by attachment to an email to Professor Michael O’Hara at
