CANCELLED - The Bard Abroad: Shakespeare between Ireland and Italy



CANCELLED - The Bard Abroad: Shakespeare between  Ireland and Italy

by Cesare Catà

EVENT CANCELLED  We regret to inform you that Dr. Cesare Catà will not be able to come to Dublin. Therefore, the event The Bard abroad, scheduled for Wednesday 23th, is cancelled. Please accept our sincere apologies.In Shakespeare’s theater, it is possible recognize several references to Italian and Irish culture. As a matter of fact, we find in his dramatic works a series of masks, gags and reflections that unveil how European Renaissance culture already possessed specific and almost stereotypical images of Italy and Ireland.The lecture will focus on the use of Italian and Irish icons in Shakespeare, in order to describe the symbolical and  methaphorical language of his theatre. Shakespeare’s characterizations will offer the opportunity to observe and discuss Irish and Italian identity as a literary typology: how much of such representations depends on reality and how much still survives today in social, literary and political life?     Cesare Catà was born in Fermo (Italy) in 1981.  He received a PhD in Philosophy in 2008 and was Adjunct Professor at the Department of Communication Sciences at the University of Macerata.  He was visiting scholar at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, USA, Gastforshcer at the Cusanus Institut of Trier University, Germany, and developed a post-doctoral project at the EPHE of Paris. His main fields of research include Renaissance culture; Neoplatonic philosophy,  Shakespeare Studies and English/Irish Literature.
