This panel seeks to shed light on these adaptations across languages, cultures, religions, and even platforms (theatre, TV, cinema, video games, social media, and other forms of pop culture). Proposals are invited for presentations on aspects of transcultural adaptations of Shakespeare.

In this roundtable, we’ll consider these and other voices and texts, using their works and Baltimore itself to help us discuss and analyze the place and role of artistic, journalistic, and public scholarly engagements with 21st-century America.
