Women and Shakespeare

Women and Shakespeare

'Women and Shakespeare' features conversations with diverse creatives and academics who are involved in making and interpreting Shakespeare. In the conversations, we find out both how Shakespeare is used to amplify the voices of women today and how women are redefining the world's most famous writer. Series 1 is sponsored by NYU Global Faculty Fund Award.
