What can those who teach Shakespeare learn?

Professor Jonathan Bate FBA (University of Oxford) and Professor James Shapiro (Columbia University) - with the practical help of Nick Bagnall, director of the Globe's 'Harry the Sixth' productions, and two of its cast members - considered the different ways that Shakespeare’s characters can be explored by actors and academics, how the insights of each can be valuable to the other – and what is different in the British and American approaches to Shakespeare.

This event was held as part of the British Academy's 2013 Literature Week
