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

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.
