Shakespeare’s roots in applied and participatory performance practices have been recently explored within a wide variety of educational, theatrical and community settings. Shakespeare and Social Engagement explores these settings, as well as audiences who have largely been excluded from existing accounts of Shakespeare’s performance history. The contributions in this collected volume explore the complicated and vibrant encounters between a canonical cultural force and work that frequently characterizes itself as inclusive and egalitarian.

Rowan Mackenzie is both practitioner and academic, working with specialised communities. She is founder and Artistic Director of Shakespeare UnBard and Co-Chair of the Shakespeare Beyond Borders Alliance. Her monograph Creating Space for Shakespeare will be published by Bloomsbury Arden in March 2023.

Robert Shaughnessy is Professor of Theatre and Director of Research at Guildford School of Acting, University of Surrey. His most recent books are Shakespeare in the Theatre: The National Theatre 1963-1975 (Bloomsbury, 2018) and About Shakespeare: Bodies, Spaces and Texts (Cambridge University Press, 2020).
