Shakespeare’s Rome Project

4-9 September 2017



Roma Tre University organises the first edition of an International Summer School which will be thoroughly dedicated to Shakespeare’s Rome, a field of research deeply rooted in Roma Tre University as the “Shakespeare’s Rome Project” (2004 - ).
But why Rome? 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 Andronicus, Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, Antony and Cleopatra, Cymbeline) and a 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), archeological 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 will be held in English and is open to post-graduate students, PhD students, postdocs and high school teachers from all over the world.


The Call for Application will be published by May 1st 2017 on the dedicated website (
