This evening will present highlights from the research of scholars working in the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe 1100-1800), exploring some of the many emotional facets of Shakespeare’s life, works and memory, from the seventeenth century to the present. Two short video presentations will also by screened. The talks will be complemented by a selection of music from the time of Shakespeare performed by the Fine Knacks Ensemble.
