Shakespeare in the North

An important new collection, edited by our colleague Adam Hansen, is published by Edinburgh University Press this Friday, 30th April.

It’s an exciting collection, containing essays by emerging and leading scholars, including Adam and two other Northumbria colleagues, Paul Frazer and Monika Smialkowska

As it says on the book’s website it presents “fresh perspectives on Shakespeare’s representations of and in the ‘North’, past and present”. It also has a much wider relevance. We’re sure it’s going to be an important work for Shakespeare scholars and others.

Here is a blog post by Adam, discussing some of the wider issues the book engages with:
