The issue includes a selection of essays that move from and elaborate on the European Shakespeare Research Association Conference (ESRA) that was held at Roma Tre University in July 2019. The contributions, which span from the analysis of Shakespeare’s histories to the Romances and, of course, the Roman plays as well as the great tragedies, will question the representation of power and authority with regard to its dislocations as well as spatial, gendered, and racial implications, also with an eye to Shakespeare’s afterlife in the less explored context of Soviet and post-Soviet Russia and in American film adaptations. Analogously, the concept of border, in its double association with ideas of confinement and infringement, will be tackled with regard to the uncharted notion of in/hospitality, the post-Reformation precarious religious settlement, the disruption of the land (and of the self), and the Deleuzian concept of deterritorialisation.

Abstract

The issue includes a selection of essays that move from and elaborate on the European Shakespeare Research Association Conference (ESRA) that was held at Roma Tre University in July 2019. The contributions, which span from the analysis of Shakespeare’s histories to the Romances and, of course, the Roman plays as well as the great tragedies, will question the representation of power and authority with regard to its dislocations as well as spatial, gendered, and racial implications, also with an eye to Shakespeare’s afterlife in the less explored context of Soviet and post-Soviet Russia and in American film adaptations. Analogously, the concept of border, in its double association with ideas of confinement and infringement, will be tackled with regard to the uncharted notion of in/hospitality, the post-Reformation precarious religious settlement, the disruption of the land (and of the self), and the Deleuzian concept of deterritorialisation.
