Simon Critchley is leading a summer school on Shakespeare and Philosophy in Tilburg next year. It’s for graduate students and you can find details here (via Continental Philosophy bulletin board). Critchley’s own lectures will focus on Hamlet – but discussions look to be wider. Why does Hamlet get so much attention, of all Shakespeare’s tragedies? Personally I much prefer King Lear and Othello.
I’m currently reading Stephen Greenblatt’s Will in the World, and hope to work through some more Shakespeare in preparation for the workshop in New York in February (some initial details here).
