Throughout the conference, delegates will also have the opportunity to enjoy a programme of Shakespeare films.
At the macrobert Picture House, films will include Joss Whedon’s acclaimed Much Ado About Nothing (2012) on the Thursday night, introduced by a leading expert on Shakespearean film, and on Saturday afternoon, Asta Nielsen’s Hamlet (1921), with a discussion and Q&A session.
Much Ado About Nothing will be open to the public, but delegates will benefit from a reduced rate ticket (£4.50). Please show your conference badge at the macrobert Box Office when you purchase your ticket to ensure you receive the discount.
Hamlet will be screened in collaboration with the Goethe Institut Glasgow. Tickets for Hamlet will be available from the macrobert Box Office from 3 July onwards. These tickets will be free to conference delegates – please take your conference badge and show it at the Box Office to pick up your ticket. The film will be followed by a Q&A session, chaired by Professor Stuart Hampton Reeves.
During the conference, there will also be an exciting seminar and viewing in the Pathfoot Building, led by Professor John Drakakis, on adaptations of Macbeth, including Maqbool and Joe Macbeth.
