    The International Shaw Society and The Shaw Festival invite proposals to present new critical or creative research at the Eighteenth Annual Summer Shaw Symposium.

    Research on other plays and playwrights included in the Shaw Festival’s season, especially those performed that weekend (Charley’s Aunt, Gypsy, Desire Under the Elms, Sherlock Holmes and the Raven’s Curse, and Flush) will be considered. Please look over the Shaw Festival’s official website at to examine the season programme. Generous funding for graduate students and emerging scholars is available through Bryden Scholarships and ISS Travel Grants. See the ISS website at for information about grant applications.

    Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words, emphasizing the research and/or creative value of your proposed talk, and a short CV to ISS Vice President Jen Buckley at by 15 March 2021. Feel free to send any relevant questions to Dr. Buckley or ISS President Bob Gaines at
