Beyond 400: New Shakespeares

After a year-long celebration of the quartercentenary of Shakespeare’s death, it’s time to move from reflection to future directions. What will Shakespearean text and performance look like, beyond the 400 year anniversary? This symposium will draw on the expertise of its four keynote speakers from the Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham and the University of York to focus on questions of editing and performance.
