International Responses to Shakespeare in the Collections of the Shakespeare Birthplace

My project will explore how a scholarly, analytical overview of the range of the Trust’s international collections (artistic objects, translations, creative writing, souvenirs, and commemorative items) in addition to the Trust as an archive of international cultural responses (celebrations, special projects, and Shakespeare societies), might be constructed and why. From this initial, analytical overview, the project will then comprise chapters exploring cultural responses to Shakespeare within the collection, asking such key questions as: what is the place of Shakespeare within discourses of nationalism and internationalism? Also, how might international collections be used to engage wide audiences  both within and beyond the HE sector?
