About

This Global Shakespeare course from Queen Mary University of London will look at Shakespeare’s afterlives in different parts of the world, and include hands-on workshops in which we will try out different possible ways of interpreting “global” plays like Antony and Cleopatra.

Overview

Course aims

This Global Shakespeare course from Queen Mary University of London aims to introduce students to a range of recent developments in Shakespeare’s afterlives around the globe, allowing them:
  • to understand the global cultural exchange and globalization more generally as a force in the dissemination of Shakespeare in the twenty-first century;
  • to grasp the ways in which Shakespeare's plays themselves engage with worlds beyond early modern England as a way of exploring and representing Shakespeare's own world;
  • use global theory and criticism to analyse and interpret a range of Shakespearean (and other early modern) texts;
  • understand the history of the theory of tragedy and its significance for understanding Shakespearean tragedy in a globalized world;
  • read Shakespearean texts closely, in a historically and theoretically informed way, and convey such interpretations in appropriately scholarly forms of discourse and writing in the light of the latest available research findings.

Programme Structure

In the heart of Shakespeare's London, a short tube ride away from the Globe Theatre, you will discover and debate a range of recent developments in Shakespeare studies, and learn to read carefully, think deeply, and write clearly. That is:
  • to read Shakespearean texts closely, in a historically and theoretically informed way, and convey your interpretations in appropriately scholarly forms of discourse and writing
  • to analyse cinematic works that take Shakespeare's plays as their source text or their inspiration, from a range of countries around the globe including Japan, India, Mexico, and Malaysia to grasp the ways in which Shakespeare's plays themselves engage with worlds beyond early modern England, as a way of exploring and representing Shakespeare's own world; and
  • to understand global cultural exchange, and globalisation more generally, as a force for the dissemination of Shakespeare in the twenty-first century.
