The conference registration is free and open to the public. Please register at the provided link.

Latinx Shakespeare, an offshoot of global or multicultural Shakespeare studies, is a growing field of humanistic inquiry. Our project is a one-day symposium that will bring together scholars, theater practitioners, teachers, students and community members to explore intersections between Shakespeare and Latinx drama. We will explore the diverse, innovative ways Latinx playwrights and performers engage with, adapt and appropriate Shakespeare. Pedagogical concerns are central to the project and participating teachers will come away with valuable strategies for presenting Shakespeare to Latinx students. The symposium will feature a teaching workshop, two panels, a keynote speech, and a performance and talkback with an emerging Latinx playwright based in Houston.

This program is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and support by UTSA - The University of Texas at San Antonio and UTRGV - The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.
