Anti-Racist Shakespeare

This new series of webinars will focus on the relationship between race, social justice and Shakespeare. Anti-Racist Shakespeare: Perspectives on the Plays will be a platform to enable as many participants to engage as possible in this vital discussion.

Taking place live entirely on Zoom, the events will be hosted by Shakespeare’s Globe and delivered by actors and scholars of colour; we encourage audience members, theatre professionals, teachers and scholars from all backgrounds to add their critical voices by attending and asking questions.

This event is sponsored by Cambridge University Press.
