Shakespeare Lecture in Newcastle

The Inaugural Honigmann Shakespeare Lecture

13th December, 6pm, at the Literary and Philosophical Society,  Newcastle upon Tyne

The School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics, in collaboration with the Medieval and Early Modern Research Group at Newcastle University,  will hold an annual  public Shakespeare lecture in honour of our distinguished colleague, Emeritus Professor Ernst Honigmann, who died in 2011. The first Honigmann Shakespeare lecture will be given by Professor Gordon McMullan, King's College London, and followed by a drinks reception.

We are especially pleased that Professor McMullan is our inaugural speaker. In 1989 he was appointed as Professor Honigmann's replacement in the Department of English at Newcastle University, moving to KCL in 1995. Like Professor Honigmann, he is a renowned scholarly editor of Shakespeare.

The title of Professor McMullan's lecture is 'Cormorant: A History of Greed in Shakespeare and others'.

For further information please contact the convenor of MEMS, Ruth Connolly (Ruth.Connolly@ncl.ac.uk) and to book your place, please email library@litandphil.org.uk.

The event is free. All welcome!
