We are happy to welcome back our good friend Per Sivefors (Linnæus University) to share his work on Swedish Shakespeare under Gustavus III in the 18th century. His talk is entitled “‘Come, for England’: Politics, Cultural Exchange and the First Swedish Hamlet (1787)”. We are convening in the Gallery of the Rose Theatre, Kingston starting at 6.30pm on Thursday Feb 23. See also the event page on Facebook. The talk is free and open to everyone.
Per Sivefors is Associate Professor of English at Linnaeus University, Sweden, and currently a visiting scholar at the University of Sussex. He works on representations of manliness in Elizabethan satire, dream narratives, city culture and authorship. His latest book publication is the edited volume Urban Encounters: Experience and Representation in the Early Modern City (Pisa, 2013).
