Kingston Shakespeare has a new roundtable format featuring three different types of session: firstly, authors discussing their recent books; secondly, playreadings focusing on ‘Shakespeare, volume one’, three apocryphal texts; and thirdly, work-in-progress seminars with scholars discussing their recent work in and around all things Shakespeare.
Here is the programme for this Fall (with amendations forthcoming as soon as possible):
- Oct. 6: Booktalk: Shakespeare and New Historicist Theory with Neema Parvini (Surrey)
