Shakespeare Birthday Lecture: Washington DC

Shakespeare's Birthday Lecture
April 24, 2006 8pm
Folger Elizabethan Theatre

W. B. Worthen, Professor of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, will deliver the annual Shakespeare Birthday Lecture at 8 p.m. on 24 April 2006. His talk, "Shakespeare 3.0," asks what the impact of "information culture" is on our understanding of drama, performance, and Shakespeare. How are the models we often use to describe the work of Shakespearean drama altered by the climate of decontextualized "information" flow? Or are they? Professor Worthen's Print and the Poetics of Modern Drama is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press in January.
