Australian Open-Air Shakespeare: A Spatial History
Rose is working on a project which traces the history of open-air Shakespeare productions in Australia from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day with a focus on changing cultural responses to Australian space. This study asks: how have local spatial and climatic conditions shaped Australian appropriations of Shakespeare, and how have responses to the Australian environment intersected with responses to the plays?
