Shakespeare’s Shipwrecks: Theatres of Maritime Adventure

von Andreas Höfele

The 2011 spring conference of the German Shakespeare Society, organised in association with the European Shakespeare Research Association (ESRA), will take place 28 April – 1 May 2011 in Weimar.

Born from an early modern culture of wide-ranging sea adventures, Shakespeare’s works engage with oceanic spaces as a natural sphere of promise, peril, and temptation. Taking the 400th anniversary of The Tempest as its point of departure, the conference will engage with the prominent role of maritime themes and settings throughout the Shakespearean canon and the later sea-changes the plays have undergone through various modes of appropriation, translation, and stage production.
