Thomas Nashe (1567– c.1600), polemicist, dramatist and early novelist, shaped the culture of early modern literature in the age of Shakespeare. This symposium will explore Nashe’s influence on drama and the visual nature of his work. It forms part of the Thomas Nashe Project, a major collaborative project which is overseeing a new six-volume edition of the works of Nashe for Oxford University Press.

The symposium will conclude with a Read Not Dead reading of The Terrors of the Night in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

Learn more about Thomas Nashe and his writing in the 'Extemporal Vein' blog.

Organised with the Arts & Humanities Research Council, Newcastle University and the University of Sussex.
