The Faculty of Education and Social Work invites you to a reception and in-conversation with Adjunct Professor John Bell AM OBE. Professor Bell will discuss the agony and the ecstasy of interpreting, teaching and performing the works of Shakespeare in our modern culture. Is there still a place for Shakespeare? What is the value of Shakespeare in our contemporary world (of celebrity and short attention spans!)? Why is Shakespeare simultaneously loathed and adored? Why teach Shakespeare to primary school students? Professor Bell will be addressing these issues and drawing on his vast experience of interpreting the Bard and working with Bell Shakespeare in schools and theatres across Australia and internationally.
The event will be chaired by Professor Robyn Ewing and they will be joined for the Q&A by Saskia Smith, Bell Shakespeare’s resident teaching artist. A must for all those interested in reading and teaching literature, at all levels.
5.30–6pm Reception, Common Room
6–7pm Lecture Event, Lecture Theatre 351, Education Building A35, Manning Road, University of Sydney 2006
