Who Owns Shakespeare? Dig Into the Archives Event

Please join us and please tell your students!

Who Owns Shakespeare?
Dig Into the Archives Series
A Different Topic Every Month

WHEN: Friday, December 7, 2012, at 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Special Collections Reading Room in Magill Library

Using the early quartos and theatre manager Augustin Daly’s copy of the first folio (which Haverford now owns), we will explore the relationships between printed text, performance and intellectual property rights. Beginning in the early modern period—when audiences were familiar with theatrical revisions of the plays rather than the original manuscripts—we will follow a trajectory through to modern day and consider our “ownership” of Shakespeare.
