S72) "Have We Devils Here?: Exclusion In Shakespeare Studies
Cultural, social and political exclusion/inclusion, generated by e.g. race, age, gender, religion, ethnicity, has been a facet of existence since the inception of civilization. Drawing on work by Byrne, 2005; Young, 2002; Fraser, 2000, we propose to use 'exclusion' as a conceptual and critical category to negotiate Shakespeare works, their translations, adaptations, productions and criticism by investigating their causal and instrumental links with deprivation, disentitlement and market inaccessibility. We believe that by focusing on exclusion and the struggles for emancipation promised through the recognition of difference, both the marginalised and the occluded will be highlighted, facilitating innovative readings of Shakespeare.
