The Great White Bard: Shakespeare, Race and the Future of his Legacy

Sunday 8 October

Over the last few years, we have witnessed the toppling of monuments of white Western history and culture. As people across the UK and beyond begin to ask if Shakespeare is still relevant, this timely book launches a much-needed discussion of Shakespeare and race.

Professor Farah Karim-Cooper has dedicated her career to the Bard and now wants to take the playwright down from his plinth to unveil a Shakespeare fit for the twenty-first century.

In Conversation with Jacqui O’Hanlon, Director of Learning and National Partnerships, Royal Shakespeare Company.
