All the World's a stage: Shakespeare in Europe and the Americas 

23 May 2016


23 May 2016
On Friday 10 June 2016, 10.30-17.15, British Library Conference Centre, a study day brings together leading specialists to explore Shakespeare's global cultural presence from Europe to the Americas via the Indian Ocean.

No writer's work has been translated, performed and transformed by as many cultures across the world as Shakespeare's. Themes include Shakespeare's source material; postcolonial adaptations; performance on stage and film; and the cultural politics of European Shakespeare.

The event is organised in conjunction with the British Library exhibition Shakespeare in Ten Acts.

This event is organised by the Department of European Studies, headed by our Advisory Board member Janet Zmroczek.

In partnership with the AHRC Translating Cultures Theme, the Polish Cultural Institute and the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library
