Global Shaw

This roundtable celebrates the diversity of Bernard Shaw’s plays. Through his iconoclastic stances on issues like war, gender and class inequality, and income distribution, Shaw and his works have garnered international attention for over a century. His talky but humorous dialogue inverts social mores to focus on human rights that transcend borders. Participants can consider particular plays, Shavian characters, or suggest why Shaw is a global figure whose works engender fresh interpretations. 250 word abstracts by 9/30/13 to: ellen.dolgin@dc.edu
