Research Projects

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust hosts special research projects and co-supervises doctoral students

Our research has three themes: 

  • Shakespeare’s life and biography.
  • Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon.
  • Shakespeare’s creative and global legacies.

We are delighted to host special research projects and to co-supervise doctoral students. Current work includes work on Grassroots Shakespeare (led by William Wolfgang, University of Warwick), the Stratford Antiquarians (led by Alice Maltby-Kemp, University College, London), the International Collections of The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust (led by Helen Hopkins, Birmingham City University), and the music of Guy Woolfenden (led by Leah Broad, University of Oxford).

To find out more about research into our Collections, please browse through our online exhibitions.

Our monthly programme of Research Conversations takes place on the second Wednesday of every month from 5.00pm to 6.00pm at the Shakespeare Centre. Entry is free and no booking is required, simply keep an eye on our What's On pages for details of upcoming events.
