Shakespeare and Evil

We are delighted to announce our event for Trinity term, a lecture on ‘Shakespeare and Evil’!

2015 lies between the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth last year, and the 400th anniversary of his death next year. As celebrations of Shakespeare’s profundity and morality abound, James Sheldrake will be offering a timely exploration of the darker side of Shakespeare in performance, exploring stagings of the “universal” playwright in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and pre-Civil Rights America.

James is a freelance Shakespearean. Since finishing a Masters in Renaissance Literature at Oxford, he has taught at RADA, worked with Globe Education and podcasts regularly at www.sheldrakeonshakespeare.com. He is currently pitching a programme on Shakespeare and Evil, the subject of the lecture, to the BBC World Service.

The lecture will be held on Monday 11th May, at 2pm in the Blue Boar Lecture Theatre at Christ Church. Entrance is entirely free, and we would love to see as many of you there as possible! The Facebook event for the lecture can be found here, which will have regular updates.

We are on Twitter @Oxford_Culture, and on Facebook
