Continuing Professional Development: Shakespeare and Women

This event has now passed.
Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

This online workshop, delivered by an experienced Globe Education Practitioner, will equip teachers with strategies to facilitate conversations with their classes about sexism, misogyny and depictions of women in Shakespeare.

Focusing on four women in the plays – Juliet, Lady Macbeth, Beatrice and Hero – the session will draw together critical writing with practice from the Globe’s rehearsal rooms to re-evaluate these characters for our times. We will explore how these techniques can be adapted for the classroom to encourage students to examine their own reactions to Shakespeare’s portrayal of women.
