Re-Reading William Shakespeare: A Colloquium with Terry Eagleton

Date: 7 May 2011 Time: 9.00 am

Venue: The Storey Institute, Lancaster

Twenty five years ago, Terry Eagleton's preface to William Shakespeare began by wittily comparing the foolhardy prospect of writing a short book on Shakespeare to a Monty Python sketch, before setting forward its focus on 'the interrelations between language, desire, law, money and the body'. The 104-page book went on to demonstrate the case for re-reading Shakespeare in the light of writings by figures such as Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Wittgenstein, Jameson, Lacan, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida and Kristeva.

The colloquium will feature papers by Prof John Drakakis, Mr Steven Gregg, Prof Marion Wynne-Davies, Dr Liz Oakley-Brown, Dr Kathleen O'Leary, Prof Richard Wilson and Prof Peter Womack.
