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.
