Subject:     2013 Colloquium at Fairleigh Dickinson University


Julius Caesar will be the subject of the 2013 Shakespeare Colloquium at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ. This annual gathering, now in its 21st year, will take place on Saturday, October 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., in room S-11 of the Science Building. These colloquiums are free and open to the public.


Shakespeare’s Roman tragedy has always been important in American culture and in the school curriculum. Sometimes seen as a defense of rebellion, and sometimes as a critique, it will be discussed at this colloquium in its full complexity by four scholars who focus on the play’s rhetoric, its portrayal of women, its treatment of human agency, and its afterlife in adaptation.


Speakers this year are Eric Johnson-Debaufre (Harvard University), Naomi Liebler (Montclair State University), Hugh Grady (Arcadia University), and Iska Alter (Hofstra University). Coordinators of the colloquium are Harry Keyishian and Bianca Calabresi, both of Fairleigh Dickinson University.


New Jersey teachers may obtain professional development hours for their participation. Forms will be available at the colloquium.


Registration is not required, but is welcomed for planning purposes. To register, or for further information, write to Harry Keyishian at GH2-01, 285 Madison Avenue, Madison, NJ 07940, or by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
