Shakespeare Speaker Series: Professor Lloyd Kermode and Professor Martine van Elk
 "A Door Opens" - The Shakespeare Speaker Series Begins
The title of this Speaker Series refers to two things. First, the opening of the door of our theatre to anyone and everyone who has an interest in the world of Shakespeare. And, second, the sensation of walking across a threshold beyond which is a new vision...either something never seen before, or something familiar suddenly seen in a new way. Shakespeare is a door to a new way of expressing or comprehending emotion, a door to a world that paid much more attention to nature, to a passing moment, to eternity.

Whether you are new to Shakespeare or a long-time fan, the goal of this Series is to bring you closer to Shakespeare and his work. We invite you to come explore Shakespeare with us!

Sunday, April 13th  2pm
Guest Speakers:  Professor Lloyd Kermode and Professor Martine van Elk, professors of English at California State University Long Beach, and co-directors of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at CSULB.

FREE! But seating is limited; so, reservations are required. The presentation will be an hour, with time for questions, and a reception with the Speakers following the discussion.

MARTINE VAN ELK is Professor of English at California State University, Long Beach, where she specializes in Shakespeare, Milton, and early modern women writers. Professor van Elk is the co-editor of the essay collection Tudor Drama before Shakespeare 1485-1590 (Palgrave, 2004), and her essays have appeared in Shakespeare Quarterly, Philological Quarterly, Studies in English Literature 1500-1900, and elsewhere. She is currently working on a comparative study of Dutch and English women writers of the seventeenth century.

LLOYD EDWARD KERMODE is Professor of English at California State University, Long Beach, where he teaches courses in early modern literature and culture, and literary criticism and theory. He is the author of Aliens and Englishness in Elizabethan Drama (Cambridge University Press, 2009) and the editor of Three Renaissance Usury Plays (Revels series; Manchester University Press, 2008). He is currently working on notions of space and time in early modern drama, including Shakespeare.
