The Stage and All the World
- Conference Schedule
On exhibit April 18, 2016 - June 17, 2016
The year 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the deaths of two of the world's great writers: William Shakespeare (1564-1616) and Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616). Both authors lived in the golden age of European exploration when new discoveries were changing the way Europe understood and represented the world. This exhibit juxtaposes the way exploration and geography are represented in literature and in maps from the early modern period. Accompanying the exhibit will be a display of the digital project Shakespeare on the Map.
