Sandra Clark (Professor Emerita of Renaissance Literature, Birkbeck, University of London) will give two back-to-back lectures at Aoyama Gakuin University on November 16th.
1) "Shakespeare and Domestic Economy"
This lecture will discuss Shakespeare’s handling of domestic economy in four plays, three comedies and a tragedy. Clark uses the terms economy and economics to refer to the management of resources within the household.
2) "Culture in Translation in Early Modern England"
This lecture will consider how modern foreign languages were taught and learnt in early modern England and how the writings of two Protestant language teachers, Claudius Hollyband and John Florio, religious refugees from continental Europe, contributed to these processes.
Both lectures will be given in English, and the workshop will be conducted in English.
