Global Shakespeares,
Presidency University, Kolkata

Recent scholarship has laid much emphasis on how William Shakespeare's plays engaged directly with what is now being described as the "Global Renaissance". From Titus Andronicus to The Tempest, his plays seem deeply interested in staging and exploring racialized others and moments of contact. At the same time, Shakespeare as part of the British literary canon, played a vital role in the colonial machinery; and later became an indispensable part of postcolonial resistance.

The debate about the function of language is ancient: there are those who believe that language can partially construct reality, and there are those who believe that language is primarily a set of labels for objects. There are also those who believe that language can act on people; this is a magical view of language. And in fairytales, legends, and myths, language is capable of action e.g., magic passwords, spells, incantations, etc.
