In celebration of Texas A&M University’s designation as the host institution for the New Variorum Shakespeare (NVS) and in continued commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of Shakespeare’s First Folio, we are pleased to invite you to our upcoming symposium, Folio Futures: Editing Early Modern Plays for Tomorrow’s Audiences, on Friday, April 26 at Texas A&M University-College Station and livestreamed on Zoom.

The symposium will bring together scholars from around the world to assess the history of and future possibilities for editing Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Scholars of Shakespeare’s works, digital humanists, and NVS editors will discuss the challenges and opportunities of editing in the twenty-first century for new global audiences who read, perform, and teach in a variety of media.
