Shakespeare and Contemporary Theory (Podcast series)
Parvini, N (2012) Shakespeare and Contemporary Theory (Podcast series) School of English and Languages, University of Surrey.
December 1, 2012 In this podcast Dr Neema Parvini, author of Shakespeare’s History Plays: Rethinking Historicism and Shakespeare and Contemporary Theory: New Historicism and Cultural Materialism and Lecturer in English at the University of Surrey, interviews various Shakespeare scholars and literary theorists from around the world in a bid to gain an understanding of the current state of play in Shakespeare studies and in literary criticism more generally. Through a series of candid talks, it will tackle the biggest theoretical and practical questions that have preoccupied scholars and readers of Shakespeare alike for generations: the idea that history is driven by human beings versus the idea that it is driven by forces beyond our control, the individual versus society, nature versus nurture, and freedom versus determinism.
