This roundtable seeks to tackle the vexed yet essential issue of Shakespeare in translation. Panelists are encouraged to approach this in a number of ways, such as direct translation and intercultural adaptation. Papers could discuss a particular translation of a particular play, compare and contrast previous translations, explore a more open adaptation, or discuss the aesthetic, cultural, even political issues at stake when translating Shakespeare. Papers are not restricted to textual translation, as papers on dramatic or cinematic translation and adaptation are also very much welcome.

What household practices were modeled on those of the royal household? How did the city of London, the royal palaces, and places Elizabeth visited during her progresses accommodate the queen's needs? How were the material aspects of trade, gift-giving, cooking, writing, theater, etc. affected by Elizabeth's prominent position as a ruler?
