Abstract
The Renaissance was a period of great scientific and technological advancement
. But did Shakespeare and his contemporaries believe in the possibility of
creating a being which we today might term ‘cybernetic’? This lecture will
explore the ways in which the drive towards the manufacture of automata and
artificial life, fuelled by the dark arts of alchemy, was dramatized in the
playwright’s work. There has never been a better time to look back at our
modern culture’s cybernetic beginnings and pose the question: Was Shakespeare
a Cyborg?

文摘:
This talk will look at the way tragedy was staged in Shakespeare’s time. It
will explore ‘tragic’ ways of walking; ‘tragic’ ways of speaking; and ‘
tragic’ ways of displaying emotion. Looking at text and pictures from the
time of Shakespeare, it will ask whether performance in his time, with its
ritual and stylisation, was nearer to a form of Chinese opera than has been
realised.

题目:Shakespearean Scholarship and Shakespearean Performance:

Abstract:
This talk examines the relationship between Shakespearean scholarship and the
Shakespearean theatre, looking briefly at the troubled relationship between
David Garrick and Samuel Johnson in the 18th century before considering the 20
th and 21st centuries and the work of such figures as William Poel, Harley
Granville Barker, John Barton, and Stanley Wells.  What interests do the
academy and the theatre share, and what continues to divide them?  What can it
tell us about their current truce that Arden have just begun to publish a
series of Performance Editions of Shakespeare?
