We would like to invite English A-Level students from across Manchester to take part in a series of interactive workshops on Shakespeare and his works.
The day will focus on Shakespearean Tragedy, with an enjoyable and stimulating lecture by Dr Jerome De Groot from English and American Studies. Academics and postgraduates from the English department at the University of Manchester will offer the following workshops on Shakespeare (provisional):
Shakespeare on film, Hamlet: key passages, Approaching Shakespeare: important ideas. Each workshop lasts one hour and students will attend all three.
This interesting day is followed by the annual John Stachniewski Memorial Lecture on Shakespeare in the evening. Previous lecturers have included Professor Kate McLuskie, Director of the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon. We invite students to stay for the lecture which begins at 5pm.
