“Global Shakespeare and the Digital Humanities” is the fourth in a series of NYUAD conferences devoted to examining how Shakespeare’s plays and poems have become part of global cultural heritage. This conference examines one potential future for Shakespeare studies, as it investigates the implications of translating Shakespeare’s work not only into languages other than English but also into the digital realm, which makes “global” adaptations of Shakespeare available to local audiences in unprecedented ways.

  • Cyrus RK Patell, Professor of Literature, NYUAD; Professor of English, NYU
  • David Joseph Wrisley, Associate Professor of Digital Humanities, NYUAD
