Edward de Vere

"Then frolic, lordlings, to fair Concord's walls . . . "

--Locrine I.iv.11

Welcome to Concordia University in Portland, Oregon and the home of the Shakespeare Authorship Studies Conference. We are the academic home of annual assemblies that bring together professors, teachers, students, playwrights, actors, directors and lovers of Shakespeare from all over the world to share research about and insights into the Elizabethan world's most acclaimed poet-playwright with the primary goals of establishing who the writer the world knows as Shakespeare was and exploring why he wrote anonymously and probably pseudonymously.

Navigate through the conference website for information on the annual April conference, the annual August seminar, Concordia University's plans for the establishment of a Shakespeare Authorship Research Centre and Library, the conference's scholarship fund, and books on and relevant to the Shakespeare Authorship Question that are available for purchase through the Concordia University Bookstore. Also available are authorship articles and addresses, as well as links to the websites of various Oxfordian, Marlovian, Baconian and other Shakespeare authorship organisations in the United States and the United Kingdom.

For more information on the April conference, August seminar, or Shakespeare authorship studies in general, contact the Director, Prof. Daniel Lee Christopher Andrew Rupert Wright, at dwright@cu-portland.edu
