Thinking about Shakespeare and Film (Sept 2, 2023)

Free one-day event at Garrick’s Temple to Shakepeare, Hampton, London

Confirmed speakers: Mark Burnett, Inma Sanchez-Garcia, Julia Ng, Jessica Chiba, Katrin Truestedt, and Paul Kottman.

Our symposium is dedicated to thinking about what happens to Shakespeare on film. This prompt will be taken in various directions by each of the speakers, with the overall aim of staging a conversation about film and Shakespeare that is both general and broad-ranging, while also anchored by discussions of specific plays, films and themes.

The symposium will take place on Saturday September 2, 2023 at Garrick’s Temple to Shakespeare from 10 am to 5.30 pm.
How to get there.

The event is free but reserving a place is necessary.
