Localizing Shakespeare in Asia

Seminar for the 2009 BSA at King's College London (9/11-13/2009)

Although each Asian community has its own theatrical tradition, Shakespeare is probably the most read, studied, and performed single playwright in Asia. On the one hand, Shakespeare's manifold presence exerts enormous influence: he is incorporated into formal education of English, translated and transformed on stage, and popularized by comic books and animation. On the other hand, Asia - both as a treasury of literature and art and as an emerging superpower - also informs Shakespeare scholarship and performance in the West. This seminar aims at exploring the intricate relations between Shakespeare and Asia.
