Description

Engaging with the Humanities in collaboration with the Oxford Character Project

Emma Smith - Disrupting the entertainment industry in Shakespeaker's London

Wednesday 6 June 2018, 12.15 - 13.15

Saïd Business School, in collaboration with the Oxford Character Project, is delighted to welcome Emma Smith, Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Hertford College, Oxford, to deliver a session on Wednesday 6 June.

About the talk

Theatre was the new media of Elizabethan London. This talk discusses the industry via its entrepreneurs - playhouse owners, actors, writers, and publishers. We can trace how these innovators developed the new industry commercially and artistically. This includes issues of early modern branding, advertising, intellectual property, customer loyalty and product differentiation.

Seeing how business imperatives overlap with artistic ones (and occasionally pull in different directions) gives a different, more material angle on the development of Shakespeare - as playwright and as commodity.
