This one-day Symposium is a part of the larger month-long Liverpool Winter's Tale Festival celebrating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s The Winter's Tale. It aims to enhance our understanding of this complex play, and papers presented at the symposium may focus on the text at the moment of production, its relationship with its predecessors and contemporaries, both within Shakespeare’s own writing and beyond, its transmission through editorial processes, as well as its interpretation through contemporary performances and re-readings. Confirmed speakers include Helen Cooper (Cambridge), Subha Mukherji (Cambridge) and Lori Humphrey Newcomb (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).
