Reading Shakespeare from a Multidisciplinary Approach

E-ISSN: 2582-0400 | CODEN: LITIBR

Last date of submission of manuscripts: 15thMay, 2021

With the recent developments in Shakespeare studies across disciplines, there is a need for re-evaluating his works through a multidisciplinary approach. There have been critical changes in political, economic, religious, linguistic spheres, thinking about world histories and rewriting Shakespeare. Right from understanding nonverbal communication across disciplines, to reading Shakespeare based on Asian experiences and circulation of Asian history, the studies have evolved, developed and they call for an intense attention to comprehending Shakespearean studies in and beyond the academic space. There has been much transformation in how we implement policy-goals and indulge into visionary research while studying Shakespeare afresh.


Where do we stand with Shakespeare study today? When we study stage, performance, acts, performativity, linguistic boundaries, ideas, fixations, centre, margin, colonial, postcolonial, race, caste, gender, consumerism and Shakespeare, dynamic texts, pandemic and the poet and multiple other innovative ways of how Shakespeare encompasses a much larger domain than we think of, we find how in several cases these studies are intertwined.
