Shakespeare's Globe: PG Seminar on Early Modern Gender

9 December 6-8pm

Shakespeare’s Globe will be hosting a seminar that assembles a small group of postgraduate scholars to examine gender in early modern England. How was gender constructed throughout this period? And how was it represented in early modern drama? The seminar is open to research students, theatre practitioners and academics.

Papers include:

Helen Barker (Shakespeare Institute): Reviewing Rape in Early Modern England

Sarah Lewis (King’s College London): Ophelia “in russet mantle clad”: the delayed daughters of Hamlet and Patient Grisill

Claire Waters (St. Catherine’s College, Oxford): Shakespeare’s Other Women: Approaching Female Ageing in Shakespeare’s Drama
