Presented by The University of Melbourne (Grimwade Centre, Faculty of Arts) and co-hosted with Humanities 21, this exciting and informative program will comprise a series of lectures, performance and immersive interaction with this historically and culturally significant text.
The “Chronicles” is an important resource in Shakespearean and Elizabethan studies. The University of Melbourne’s volume has the potential to contribute to an understanding of British history, book production and woodblock illustration.
For our third event in the series, hear from Dr David McInnis as he provides the context for a performance by actress, Lexi Sekuless, who will recite selected text from Shakespeare’s plays, Henry V, Macbeth and King Lear.
Includes a viewing of Holinshed’s Chronicles and one of Shakespeare’s manuscripts.
