Descrizione Progetto

Shakespeare and European Geographies: centralities and elsewheres

The European Shakespeare Research Association (ESRA) is proud to announce that its next biennial  Conference will take place in the summer of 2019 in Rome, Italy, at Roma Tre University.

ESRA 2019 will have a special focus on processes of remapping, with consequences for early modern discourses on borders, nations, territories, the world. It will prompt discussions of the place held by such processes in the culture of the period, but it will also foreground the various ways in which they are relevant for current preoccupations and concerns.
