2014 Meeting Overview
The Shakespeare Association’s 42nd Annual Meeting takes place in St. Louis, Missouri between 10 and 12 April 2014.
Registering for the Annual Meeting is different from registering for a seminar or workshop. This year’s seminar and workshop registrations open on 1 July, when they are announced in the SAA’s summer Bulletin. Conference registration opens on 1 January, when the schedule of events is announced in the SAA’s January Bulletin. To register for the Annual Meeting, you must be a member in good standing of the Shakespeare Association. Registration reserves your place at the Opening Reception on the Thursday evening of conference week, the Annual Luncheon on Friday, and other meeting activities.
This page goes live on 1 January 2014. Information is provided in advance of 1 January for those submitting funding requests at their home institutions.
Meeting Registration Fees for 2014
For faculty and postdoctoral scholars, the registration fee is $125; for dissertation candidates, $90.

Those who register onsite or during the conference week, after catering counts have been finalized, cannot be guaranteed seats at the Annual Luncheon. The registration deadline for the 2014 Annual Meeting is 1 March.
