Engaging with the Humanities at Oxford

Crowdfunding is all about human beings. So, what’s the best way to engage with them while making the most of it?

University of Oxford’s Said Business School delivers a series of events focused on this theme named Engaging with the Humanities.

In this respect they will welcome, next 1 March, Dr Ben Morgan who will explore how Shakespeare’s plays show the way communities form, survive and collapse.

Focussing on the texts of Twelfth Night and The Tempest, the talk will explore the unstable role played by alcohol – which inspires amity and enmity in equal, mystifying measure – in Shakespeare’s vision of the convivial. Drama in London began partly in the gardens of taverns and Professor Morgan will look at the fears surrounding the communities formed in taverns and ale-houses in the early modern period, and the way Shakespeare depicts those communities as sources of rebellion, celebration and carnival in his plays.
