THE GLOBE RESEARCH SEMINAR
Sunday, 29 Februrary 2004, 12-2pm
"Can lust be call'd love, then let men seek hell,
For there that fiery deity doth dwell."
William Rowley, All's Lost By Lust (1619)
Postgraduate and postdoctoral scholars are invited to attend the next
meeting of the Globe Research Seminar, a unique opportunity to
workshop in depth the practical and theoretical issues which arise
from the plays performed in Globe Education's "Read Not Dead" season
of staged readings.
The play under examination will be William Rowley's tragedy All's Lost
by Lust, a searing dissection of the fatal consequences of illicit
love for the individual and the state, which reaches its climax in the
Muslim conquest of Spain.
To enable discussion, an e-text of the play will be available prior to
the seminar. Discussion will be accompanied by a glass of wine, and
all participants will have the opportunity to attend the staged
reading at the Globe Education Centre Theatre in Bear Gardens.
