East Anglia and the Public Stage

This week the Centre of East Anglian Studies winter lecture series continues with Professor Helen Cooper from the University of Cambridge.

Helen has been Professor of Medieval and Renaissance English at Magdalene College since 2004, and her research interests range from early medieval Romances, to Chaucer and his legacy, and to Shakespeare and other medieval and early modern pastoral literature and romance. Her recent book, Shakespeare and the Medieval World, examined the ways in which medieval culture and literature infused Shakespeare’s life and work.

Her lecture this week will deal with drama and stagecraft in East Anglia in the long sixteenth century.
