Univ Shakespeare Society

Univ Shakespeare EventMonday 25 November 2019, 5.15pm
Master’s Lodgings

You are warmly invited to a gathering of the Univ Shakespeare Society, which is being relaunched this term as a literary society.  There will be one meeting each term, featuring a talk from an invited speaker followed by a buffet dinner.  Despite the Society’s name the talks will not usually be on Shakespeare: they will cover a wide range of topics relating to literature, and often focus on connections between literature and the contemporary moment.

The first meeting of the year, which will take place on Monday 25 November, will see Professor Helen Barr speaking on “The Refugee Tales Project: Re-imagining the Language of Borders”

Soft drinks will be served in the Master’s Lodgings from 5.15pm, with the talk beginning at 5.30. It will be followed by a buffet dinner in the Alington Room.

The event is free, and open to all members of the college community, but if you wish to attend you must RSVP to univshakespearesociety@gmail.com by 14 November 14th to register for the talk and confirm whether you will also be attending the dinner. Please specify any dietary requirements.
