Event details

We will be holding a one-day cultural event on Saturday 4th February 2012, consisting of a series of short talks led by experts from within the University of Southampton English department. This thought provoking and inspiring conference will provide you with the opportunity to learn and engage in discussion about Shakespeare from academics of international distinction.

You are warmly invited to attend our first cultural day of 2012, focusing on various aspects of Shakespeare's life and works. The format - a series of 5 short talks based on exciting new research with plenty of time for questions - is intended to stimulate discussion and debate. Speakers will include Professor John McGavin focusing on early modern London theatres, Dr Alice Hunt speaking on King Henry VIII and the ceremonial aspects of the play, Dr Louise Rayment on the cultural context of Shakespeare's works, Professor Ros King on finding enjoyment in his playful use of language, and finally Dr Stephen Morton examining the Postcolonial transformations of Shakespeare's characters by modern writers.
