You are cordially invited to join us at the Shakespeare Association of America's 2021 conference in Austin, Texas, 31 March - 3 April 2021  Seminar: Embodying Differences in Global Shakespearean Performance The ethics of embodied difference intersect with global frames for filming and performing Shakespeare in the twenty-first century. How do categories of race, gender, sexuality, and disability put pressure on artists’ and audiences’ claims about ethical and political gains of global Shakespeare? This seminar invites contributions that examine identity politics in the production and global reception of adaptations.
