SHAKESPEARE’S ROME INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL  (SRISS)

The Shakespeare’s Rome Project

Rome 09-14 September 2019

Università degli Studi Roma Tre
Dipartimento di Lingue Letterature e Culture Straniere

The third edition of the International Summer School dedicated to Shakespeare’s Rome, a field of research deeply rooted in Roma Tre University as “The Shakespeare’s Rome Project” (2004 –  ), will be held in September 2019.

Within the Shakespearean corpus the image of ancient Rome works as the emblem of the classical past, a goldmine of foundational myths and the model of an authoritative culture early modern England felt compelled to look to. To Ancient Rome Shakespeare devoted five plays (Titus AndronicusJulius CaesarCoriolanusAntony and CleopatraCymbeline) and a narrative poem (The Rape of Lucrece): the themes and motifs of these works will be examined in depth in the classroom while the city of Rome, with its theatres (and especially the Globe’s replica in the park of Villa Borghese), archaeological sites and artistic resources will offer participants a unique opportunity to complement their study outdoor. Participants will be provided with appropriate methodological tools which will help them to develop a specific competence on Shakespeare’s Rome within an intercultural and interdisciplinary perspective.

The SRISS is held in English and is open to post-graduate students, PhD students, postdocs and high school teachers.
