This webinar is a conversation I had about different aspects of Shakespearian study with the two general editors of The Oxford Shakespeare Topics series, Professor Peter Holland (McMeel Family Chair in Shakespeare Studies, University of Notre Dame) and Professor Stanley Wells, C.B.E. (Honorary President of The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust).
We talk about Shakespeare and America, the staging of the history plays, some of the material remains of his time (including Shakespeare’s ring and the dig at New Place), and reviewing Shakespeare.
The talk is very varied – it tries to embrace Shakespeare, as the series itself does – and we greatly enjoyed the hour, especially since we were joined by webinar participants from all over the world.
Thank you to Oxford University Press for sponsoring this webinar.
Hope you enjoy it, and please do join the Twitter conversation by using the hashtag #EmbracingShakespeare.
