The British Graduate Shakespeare Conference (BritGrad) is an annual graduate student conference in early modern studies, organised exclusively by the students at The Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham.  It is the largest event of its kind.  This three-day conference brings together scholars and postgraduate students to an active centre of Shakespeare scholarship: Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon. In past years, the conference has attracted post-graduate attendees from five continents.  As we are committed to cultivating an enriched academic community, undergraduate students in their final two years of study are also invited to attend the conference as auditors.
