This is Shakespeare

Live event: Prof Emma Smith (English Faculty, University of Oxford) and Erica Whyman OBE (Royal Shakespeare Company) will be in conversation.

Both Emma and Erica have recently had their Shakespeare events cancelled; Erica’s production of The Winter’s Tale for the Royal Shakespeare Company, and launch events for Emma’s book This Is Shakespeare. In this conversation, Erica and Emma discuss these events, their hopes for them, and what Shakespeare offers us both now and in the future.

The discussion will be available to watch live on TORCH's YouTube channel.

This online event is part of TORCH's Big Tent! Big Ideas! series – a programme of interdisciplinary research-fuelled live events taking place as part of the TORCH Goes Digital 2020 series. Big Tent! Big Ideas! brings world-leading Humanities researchers at the University of Oxford into conversation with one another to tackle the biggest questions of our day through the lens of their academic research.
