The Merchant of Venice: Sources, Intertexts, Afterlives

Date/Time: 9 February 2024 - 10 February 2024 -All Day

Centring on a performance of Gareth Armstrong’s acclaimed one-man show, Shylock, this symposium at the School of English, University of Leeds explores new perspectives on one of Shakespeare’s most culturally significant plays.

We examine The Merchant of Venice in early modern England, particularly its engagement with myths and images of Jewishness current at the time; and its later reception, performance history, and appropriation.
