Embracing Shakespeare: A Free Webinar

  • Share on Tumblr

Shakespeare in America? Shakespeare and Biography? Shakespeare and Material Culture? Or perhaps Shakespeare and Women? Or Shakespeare and Eastern Europe? Or Shakespeare’s Sonnets? Or perhaps Staging in Shakespeare’s Theatres?

Our free webinar, sponsored by Oxford University Press, is for everyone who loves Shakespeare and who is keen to find out more…

Please join me for an in-depth discussion with leading international Shakespearians Professor Peter Holland (University of Notre Dame) and Professor Stanley Wells C.B.E. (The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust).

‘Embracing Shakespeare’ shines a light on, and opens up, a great series of books from Oxford University Press. The Oxford Shakespeare Topics have continually embraced Shakespeare through a range of approaches. There are now twenty-two titles in the series and all of them serve as a warm and accessible way into important aspects of Shakespeare scholarship and criticism. Each book is written by an authority in their field and combines an accessible style of writing with an original discussion of its subject.

We’re meeting to discuss some of the titles in the series on Wednesday 8 August at 4.00pm (British Summer Time). You can register by clicking here, and will be able to join in the discussion by sending in points and questions during it.

Please share this blog link with your friends, colleagues, and students, and join us by registering for ‘Embracing Shakespeare.’
