Shakespearian Things

in the SBT’s Collections and Beyond

Nicola Watson discusses her recent book, The Author’s Effects: On Writer’s House Museums in our latest online Research Conversation.

Join us on Wednesday 9 December for our free online monthly Research Conversation. Taking place on Zoom on the second Wednesday of every month, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust's Research Conversations provide you with the opportunity to listen to people who are engaged in research, some of whom are working on the SBT’s own Collections.


Nicola Watson will be talking about the Shakespearian things she discusses in her recent book, The Author’s Effects: On Writer’s House Museums (Oxford University Press, 2020), among them Shakespeare’s skull, Shakespeare’s chair, and Shakespeare’s hair, to explore how real, forged, and fantasised objects have brought Shakespeare to life since the eighteenth century.

Led by Professor Nicola Watson, The Open University.

The event begins with a thirty minute presentation and will be followed by an open discussion.

Book online for your free place.

All of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust's Research Conversations are free, but we encourage donations in order to support our work and keep Shakespeare's story alive.
