The Oxford-Globe Forum for Medicine and Drama in Practice: Amputation and Body Parts

The Oxford-Globe Forum for Medicine and Drama in Practice March 22 2014 at Shakespeare’s Globe 10.30am – 4.00pm

The Oxford-Globe Forum meets twice a year, alternating between Shakespeare’s Globe and the University of Oxford. It brings together researchers and practitioners in medicine, theatre and academia to explore a designated theme. The theme for March 2014 is Amputation and Body Parts. Speakers will include a theatre director, a plastic surgeon, actors and academics; the day will conclude with a workshop rehearsal of a scene from Robert Greene’s Selimus.  Papers are informal and are limited to 12 – 15 minutes; the aim is to enable discussion among different constituencies of interest.

Registration is free. Lunch will be available for all registrants at a modest cost.
