“Shakespeare in the 21st Century”
Peter D. Holland, McMeel Family Professor in Shakespeare Studies, Department of Film, Television, and Theatre
Scott Jackson, Executive Director, Shakespeare at Notre Dame

There was a time when Shakespeare was the preserve of an elite culture. Not any more. Shakespeare is now to be found everywhere: Shakespeare for children, Shakespeare in the community, Shakespeare in movies and on the web. Shakespeare is the ultimate global product, to be found almost everywhere across the planet. This session will explore some of the ways Shakespeare’s works are being performed in the 21st century, especially on the web and here at Notre Dame.

This event is free and open to the public
