London Shakespeare Centre and Shakespeare's Globe Inaugural Graduate Conference

Making Connections: Early Modern Texts and Cultures

Featuring plenary speakers Professor Tiffany Stern (Shakespeare Institute/University of Birmingham) and Professor Pascale Aebischer (University of Exeter).



The London Shakespeare Centre and Shakespeare's Globe held their inaugural graduate conference on 23 and 24 February 2018. In a geopolitical climate increasingly dominated by the language of divisiveness, this two-day conference explored the ways in which literary culture has long brought people, texts and ideas together. This conference was a great success, bringing together over seventy graduate students from thirty institutions spread across Europe, Asia and North America.

The conference featured plenary speakers Professor Tiffany Stern (Shakespeare Institute/ University of Birmingham) and Professor Pascale Aebischer (University of Exeter), as well as a performance research session with Dr Emma Whipday (University College London) and a film screening and discussion session on the Still Shakespeare animation project with Dr Sally Barnden (Queen Mary University of London). Delegates also attended a Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank performance of Much Ado About Nothing on Saturday 24 February, with yard tickets generously provided by Shakespeare’s Globe.

Professor Aebischer’s plenary address was kindly sponsored by Shakespeare Bulletin.
