Shakespeare in Action
Shakespeare in Action: New Interdisciplinary Approaches is a conference that explores new ways of putting Shakespeare into action by looking at the intersections between Shakespearean texts and performances, disciplinary innovation, and the multiple ways in which these interact with history, politics and culture. Using Shakespeare’s unique status as a shared, global cultural resource, the conference seeks to promote conversations and projects that transcend subject boundaries, such as those between literature, creative writing, history, philosophy, music and media studies, education, and the performing arts.
This major international conference invites academics, practitioners, and educators from across the world to consider how we might utilise new interdisciplinary approaches to develop innovative ways of performing, writing about, and teaching Shakespeare.
