Shakespeare gave and withheld knowledge to craft his plot and engage his audience. We are taken on a guided ride from which we glimpse what the playwright chooses thus forming our layers of knowledge through which we are manipulated. What we know can be what we knew before attending the play, based on dialogue from the characters, or from reported speech of events off stage and even in times before the play.

“Remapping Gender in Shakespeare’s Europe”
This is a seminar at the European Shakespeare Research Association (ESRA) conference in Rome from July 9-12, 2019.
Taking Shakespeare and his theatrical world as a temporal and locative point of departure, this seminar brings together papers engaging with depictions of gender in different nations of people and across political borders from the 16th century to the present. With numerous studies over the last four decades that address gender in Shakespeare’s works and on stage, we aim to explore how gender is theorised, staged, and depicted across national and cultural boundaries.
