Is "Intercultural Shakespeare" redundant? Shakespeare is always intercultural for contemporary readers, as past is a culture of its own. What exactly distinguishes intercultural from culturual, multicultural, intracultural, transcultural, and acultural? We will read contemporary theory and analyze cross-cultural adaptations as well as Shakespeare's original texts. We will pay special attention to traditional Chinese opera--its history, genres, chracteristics, and adaptations of Shakespeare.
