About Globe 4 Globe: Shakespeare & Climate Emergency

This major two-day event, co-hosted with the universities of Warwick and California (Merced), gathers experts, activists and theatre practitioners in a vital exploration of the relationships between Shakespeare’s works and the current climate crisis. As human-made climate change threatens to dissolve the ‘great globe itself’, how can we use Shakespeare to address the most urgent environmental questions of our time? Co-organised by Katie Brokaw, Paul Prescott and the Research Department at Shakespeare’s Globe, this major two-day event will span a range of pressing topics. Scholars will explore ecological collapse and renewal in Shakespeare’s texts; environmental experts will map out ways in which Shakespearean theatres and festivals can achieve sustainable and ethical futures; theatre professionals will reflect on the capacity of live theatre to change audience perception and behaviour.
