Event description

Description

The University of Toronto Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference was conceived by professors Uzoma Esonwanne and Jeremy Lopez with the intention to bring UofT English Majors together over a shared love of studying the works of William Shakespeare.

The theme of this inaugural University of Toronto Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference is Reading Shakespeare in the Modern World. Why do we read these plays today? What is necessary to acknowledge? What might Shakespeare have to say about current understandings of politics, sexuality, gender, economy, technology, theatre theory, literary theory, etc.

Participation in the Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference at UofT is an excellent opportunity, not only for advancing one’s research skills as an Undergraduate, but also for further fostering community within the esteemed English Undergraduate Department at UofT. In analyzing the contemporary world’s relationship with “the Bard,” we hope to not merely learn more about what it means to read some plays by some dead white guy, but what that process can teach us about interacting with one another. Through your participation, this learning experience intends to deepen and fortify everyone else’s.
