John Gillies: The Conversational Turn in Shakespeare, Nov 23

Shakespeare ConversationOn Thursday November 23, 2017 John Gillies (Essex) will be giving a talk entitled ‘The Conversational Turn in Shakespeare’, where he studies two different senses of the the word ‘conversation’, one dominant and one emergent during Shakespeare’s time that has since become dominant while the former has fallen out of use. The seminar convenes at its usual place in the Gallery of the Rose Theatre, Kingston starting at 6 pm. This talk is free and open to everyone and anyone interested.

John Gillies is Professor in the Department of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies at the University of Essex. He lectured at the Shakespeare Institute, Macquarie University, The Australian National University, and LaTrobe University, before taking up an Australian Research Council Fellowship. He actively explores multimedia for pedagogical and research purposes. He has co-authored two multimedia packages: ‘Shakespeare in Japan: Deguchi Norio’, and ‘Performing Shakespeare in China. 1980-90’. The first of these is currently on the LaTrobe University web site, the second is currently in further production with his co-author, Ruru Li. In addition to various articles and book chapters, he is the author of Shakespeare and the Geography of Difference (1994); co-editor (with Virginia Mason Vaughan) of Playing the Globe: Genre and Geography in English Renaissance Drama (1998); and co-editor (with Ryuta Minami and Ian Carruthers) of Performing Shakespeare in Japan (2001).
