Women & Shakespeare Podcast
On 23 May, Dr Sarah Olive (York) and Dr Varsha Panjwani (NYU) will discuss the newly launched podcast series, ‘Women & Shakespeare’ and an episode featuring a conversation with renowned actor, Dona Croll, will be streamed. All details of the event are here: https://www.rensoc.org.uk/event/women-and-shakespeare-discussion/.
‘Women and Shakespeare’ features conversations with diverse women directors, actors, writers, and academics who are involved in making and interpreting Shakespeare. In the conversations, we find out both how Shakespeare is used to amplify the voices of women today and how women are redefining the world’s most famous writer. Sponsored by NYU Global Faculty Fund Award.
Funded by New York University, Series 1 of the ‘Women & Shakespeare’ podcast includes guests ranging from the Orwell prize-winning author, Dr Delia Jarett Macauley, to Head of Higher Education and Research at Shakespeare’s Globe and Vice-President of the Shakespeare Association of America, Professor Farah Karim-Cooper, to multiple award-winning playwright Chris Bush. The series aims to redress the gender and racial disparity in academic citational practices, public discourse, and rehearsal room power dynamics in the field of Shakespeare studies and performance.
