Subject: Globe Research Seminar in Early Modern Drama
GLOBE RESEARCH SEMINAR IN EARLY MODERN DRAMA ON 7 APRIL
Globe Education, in coordination with the English Department of King's
College London, the Drama Department of University of Bristol and the
Shakespeare Institute of the University of Birmingham, has initiated a
research seminar in early modern drama for postgraduate students and
people who have recently gained their PhDs. The seminar is a forum for
up-and-coming scholars working in English and Drama to talk about their
work with those who are at a similar stage in their careers, and all
postgraduate students are welcome.
The next seminar takes place at Shakespeare's Globe London From 12 noon
to 2pm on Sunday 7 April, and the theme will be "Early Modern Drama and
the Law". Two papers will be presented:
1) Martin Steward (University College London) "A course so smooth and
comical?: John Day's _Law-Trickes_, _Measure for Measure_, and the
politics of patronage"
2) Tom Rutter (University College London) "Title to be announced"
At 3pm there will be a "Read Not Dead" performance of John Fletcher and
Philip Massinger's _The Little French Lawyer_ in the Globe Education
Centre. "Read Not Dead" is a Globe Education project to stage-read all
of the 400 or so non-Shakespearian plays written between 1567 and 1642
with professional casts, and so far about 10 percent of this body of
work has been performed and digitally recorded by Globe Education.
The seminar is free of charge, but tickets for the staged readings will
