Fitzwilliam Reunion Lecture - all welcome. Why were early modern playwrights - Shakespeare and Co. - so obsessed with legal problems and trial scenes? What did the theatre and the law share as institutions and cultural practices, and what were their crucial differences? This talk will offer a glimpse of both the physical overlap between the literary (especially dramatic) and legal cultures in Renaissance England, and the theoretical interrelation that formed the core of this dialogue.
