This panel seeks papers for the upcoming NeMLA in April 2014. Jacques' proclamation that 'all the world's a stage' has proved prophetic in ways he could not have foreseen. This roundtable looks at how Shakespeare has been interpreted, staged, and filmed across the globe. What is at stake in these interpretations and adaptations? This panel should appeal those interested in literary adaptation, world cinema and transnational influences, issues of cultural hegemony and exchange, and Shakespeare's impact on the global stage.
