Born of the pioneering collaboration between the University of Birmingham and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC), the Radical Mischief conference offers an unmissable opportunity to be involved in an urgent and open conversation about what thought and theatre can do in our time at the RSC’s centre for research and development, The Other Place.

20-21 July 2018

A new and ambitious dialogue between theatre and scholarship has the potential to refresh the quality and impact of thought and action in both arenas. In unstable times, can such inter-disciplinary discourse reinvigorate the spirit of democracy itself?

The Conference Hosts, Erica Whyman (Deputy Artistic Director of the RSC) and Professor Ewan Fernie (Chair, Professor and Fellow of the Shakespeare Institute), invite you to join the conversation, to share your thoughts and work, and to contribute to a new agenda for our times. 

Keynote speakers

The event will also feature an exciting mix of other scholars, artists and journalists - see who is involved
