We would like to bring to your attention the extended CFP for our seminar session(s) on "Shakespeare and Music" as a part of this year's European Shakespeare Congress which is held in Gdansk from 27 to 30 July. We have already received expression of interest from publishers and we plan to develop this seminar into a regular international study group.
The project aims at a comprehensive study of Shakespeare’s heritage and its global significance. The project’s ultimate goal is to develop, implement and publish an electronic dictionary “The World of Shakespeare: An Electronic Encyclopaedia” as a free web resource.

The team members attempt to fulfil various academic tasks that include a thorough comprehension and all-round representation of the importance of Shakespeare for Russian culture and for the rest of the world. The urgency of this research issue consists in an absolute necessity to systematize the extensive data about the inclusion of Shakespeare into the worldwide cultural thesaurus with a view to a deeper understanding of Russian culture. The specification of the problem lies in revealing the uniqueness of the world of Shakespeare and in the enhancement of the significance of the Russian tradition in the reception of and research into the British playwright’s legacy in the world of Shakespeare studies.
