CFP: Asian Shakespeares: Translation, Adaptation, Interpretation (2024 SAA Seminar)

2024 SAA Seminar Led by Mark Thornton Burnett and Jessica K. Chiba

Sparked by scholarship, festivals, anime/manga films, translation projects and digital resources, this seminar explores trends in “Asian Shakespeares.” Understanding Asia as polyvocal and transnational, we reflect on the field via three overlapping areas: translation, adaptation and interpretation. This allows us to consider the play/adaptation relationship, intersections with gender studies/critical race studies, and the local/global interpretive role Shakespeare plays in Asian contexts.

The 52nd Annual Meeting of the Shakespeare Association of America will be held in Portland on 10-13 April 2024. Visit the program website at to enroll.
