29th Apr 2016 9:00am - 30th Apr 2016 6:00pm
2016 will mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, provoking renewed interest in his work, his legacy and his contemporary cultural capital. As teaching methods change, pedagogy develops, technologies advance and culture evolves, what role does Shakespeare play now and in the future of teaching and learning? How do we incorporate performance practice in the teaching of Shakespeare in Literature – and vice versa? What part does education play in the construction of our public ‘memory’ of Shakespeare at this time of commemoration?
Organised by Kate Aughterson & Ailsa Grant Ferguson (University of Brighton).
With participation from RSC Education and Cambridge Schools Shakespeare.
Sponsored by The Arden Shakespeare.
