*Foreign Shakespeare in the Post-Colonial World*

Seminar Leaders: Atsuhiko Hirota (Kyoto University, Japan) and Cary
DiPietro (Kyoto University, Japan)

This seminar will address the concept of 'foreignness' as an
interpretive strategy in the global cultures in which Shakespeare is
read and performed. Participants are invited to explore a wide array of
interpretive modes, including textual readings, theoretical approaches,
and performance contexts. While 'foreignness' is here defined broadly,
papers may examine the issue of language; for example, interpretations
which emerge out of engagements with Shakespeare as the drama of a
foreign language, or which engage with the foreignness of Shakespeare's
language. Papers may also consider post-colonial perspectives aiming to
provide new global contexts for Shakespeare.
