The KiSSiT team is proud to announce the launch of our work-in-progress seminar (henceforth acronymisised as KiSSiT WiP) which is intended as a forum mainly for post-graduates and post-doctorates to present and discuss their work in a supportive environment around a table of interested people.
KiSSiT WiP sessions so far:
- Researching and Staging “Othello on Trial”: Political and Theatrical Conundrums
- Between the monarch and subject – Early Modern Sovereignty
- Shakespearean Dialectics – from Hegel to Adorno
- Indians Shakespeares on Screen: Identity, Politics, Entertainment
- Trouble at the Globe: Emma Rice, original practices and the politics of shared light
We also invite post-grads and post-docs wanting to present their work to send us an informal proposal for either one paper or a whole session, for which we will try to find a suitable date. We will also try to pair up single papers thematically so that the presenters have also something to say to each other.
The first hour of the session is usually used for presentations and the second hour for open discussion. However, the session can be restructured in any way that suits the presenters.
Any inquiries, suggestions and proposals: please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, these sessions are free and open to all. Feel free to disseminate this!
Kingston Shakespeare Seminar (KiSS), part of the London Graduate School, announces the launch of Kingston Shakespeare Seminar in Theory (KiSSiT): a series of seminars and conferences for postgraduate students and early career scholars with an interest in Shakespeare, philosophy and theory. The program will be committed to thinking through Shakespeare about urgent contemporary issues in dialogue with the work of past and present philosophers – from Aristotle to Žižek.
