‘Types of Titus’: Titus Andronicus and Social Justice
Uploaded: 25th March 2023
This roundtable examined Titus Andronicus as a play historically implicated in the nexus between racial discrimination, sexual violence and political division. With a particular emphasis on the 2023 production held at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, the roundtable featured a series of short provocations upon Titus in the context of social justice from scholars and practitioners, followed by a brief panel discussion.
