CREATING AND RECREATING SHAKESPEARE
International Shakespeare Association: 10th World Shakespeare Congress
In 2016 we will co-host the 10th World Shakespeare Congress, along with King’s College London, Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and The Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham.
2016 marks 400 years of popular, artistic, and scholarly enthusiasm for Shakespeare’s life and works. We celebrate Shakespeare as a creator of plays and poems, characters and ideas, words and worlds. But so too, in the centuries since the playwright’s death in 1616, have scholars and thinkers, writers, artists, and performers — of all kinds and from around the globe — re-created him.
The tenth World Shakespeare Congress of the International Shakespeare Association will honour Shakespeare’s 400-year legacy and celebrate the continuing global resonance of his work.
The Congress’s rich programme of plenary lectures, seminars, panels, workshops, events, and performances will take place in Stratford-upon-Avon and London. WSC 2016 will offer unparalleled opportunities to engage with current Shakespeare performance, criticism, and pedagogy, and to connect with fellow Shakespeareans from around the world.
