About V4 Project

Drawing on the achievements of the previous VF grant (Shakespeare in Central Europe after 1989: common heritage and regional identity), this project aims at mapping how Shakespeare has crossed cultural, political, social borders across Central and Eastern Europe and beyond, since the division of Europe in 1945. We are now interested in elucidating the complex aesthetic and ideological negotiations which take place when Shakespeare’s plays produced in this region travel to new or renewed destinations, in scripting the dialogue between media, genres, formats, culture and critical discourses.
