"Dunărea de Jos" University of Galati

Organised yearly by the Department of English of the Faculty of Letters of “Dunărea de Jos” University of Galați, the Students’ Symposium “William Shakespeare” is a cultural event meant to bring together students and scholars interested in Shakespeare studies.

The tradition of organising Shakespeareana in Galați continues this year with the twenty-second edition which includes several types of activities involving first-, second- and third-year students of the Faculty of Letters. The symposium will open with a paper presentation session which gives students the opportunity to present their research on various Shakespeare-related themes. Then, a drama performance and a film workshop will entertain the audience while raising issues concerning Shakespeare’s reception in the contemporary popular culture.
