Sidelights on Shakespeare
Sidelights on Shakespeare - an Interdisciplinary Seminar Series.
'Sidelights on Shakespeare' has been running for over three years at Warwick University and its roll of excellent speakers is developing into a who's who of contemporary Shakespeare scholarship. Our objective: constantly to search out, and bring to wider attention, innovative and interesting perpectives on all things Shakespeare.
'Sidelights on Shakespeare' exists to embrace the plurality of Shakespeare(s), both historical and contemporary. Each year our aim is to offer unusual and thought-provoking approaches, presented by scholars working in a diverse range of faculties, disciplines and theoretical fields. Through sideways explorations of the ways in which aspects of Shakespeare are interpreted, packaged, enlisted and attacked, the series identifies what it is that continues to make Shakespeare culturally so important.
Autumn Term 2014:
Tuesday 11th November, 4pm.
Dr Paul Prescott, will be discussing the 'On the Road' project and the recent summer months he spend traversing the USA in search of the heart of the relationship between Shakespeare and North American culture
Due to circumstances beyond his control, IAS visiting professor, Angus Fletcher (English, CUNY), has had to cancel his planned lecture tour to the Uk for 2014. Professor Fletcher's paper discussing Hamlet from a perspective informed by evolutionary and cognitive science will be resheduled for a later date.
Looking forward: We are delighted to announce that Dr Peter Kirwan, one of the original founders of Sidelights on Shakespeare and now teaching at the University of Nottingham, has agreed to present our third seminar of the year in early 2015.
