This event has now passed.
Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.
This one-day online symposium gathers experts, activists and theatre practitioners in a vital exploration of intersectionality, women, and the precarity of power. We will consider these questions and more in the context of Shakespeare’s works and in our world.
The event will be of particular interest to students, academics, teachers, and scholars but is open to all.
Organised by the Education department at Shakespeare’s Globe, this event will play host to internationally renowned speakers who will ask some of the most urgent questions of our day in light of Elizabethan sexual politics. The #MeToo and TimesUp movements will form part of our discussion as we think about the position of women in Shakespeare’s plays.
