Games and Shakespeare

  • Room 302, Geoffrey Manton Building, Manchester Metropolitan University Rosamond Street West Manchester, England, M15 United Kingdom (map)

As a cornerstone of so much of English language culture it is no surprise that Shakespeare has been adapted and mediated across all media forms. In this talk and curated play session Dr Stephen Curtis will look particularly at a range of ways in which the Bard and his works have been used as the inspiration or setting for games, both card/board and digital. As well as a brief summary of the general state of Shakespearean games, Stephen will discuss what the process of ‘gaming’ Shakespeare can offer to critical discussions of the plays and poems that make up his work.
