SHAKESPEARE AT THE TEMPLE
David Garrick built his Shakespeare Temple beside the Thames at Hampton in 1755 as a place where ‘the thinkers of the world’ would meet to reflect on the plays. He hoped Voltaire would come. Now the Kingston Shakespeare Seminar is realising the great actor’s vision, with a series of symposia on Shakespeare in Philosophy. Each of these Saturday events features talks by leading philosophers and Shakespeare scholars, coffee and tea in the riverside garden designed by Capability Brown, and lunch at the historic Bell Inn.
On Saturday June 23 2018 the Temple symposium will be on
FOUCAULT AND SHAKESPEARE
with participation from
Tom Brockelman, Jonathan Dollimore, Stuart Elden,
Kelina Gotman, Jennifer Rust, Duncan Salkeld
