As we mark the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, we shall be following key themes and controversies relating to the life, legacy and the different worlds of Shakespeare, travelling from Stratford to London, taking in his fellow dramatists and expanding the scene through international encounters on stage, media and film.

We will be offering free chapters from prestigious books and articles from Shakespeare Survey every month to celebrate the reach of Shakespeare’s global reputation, as well as attending key conferences through the year to bring you the very best in global Shakespeare scholarship. Find out more at
