A talk with James Shapiro
Dr. Shapiro, author of The Year of Lear: Shakespeare in 1606, came to Santa Fe in support of the ISC Year of Lear. We were excited to have a chance to hear his thoughts on this most remarkable play.
James Shapiro is the Larry Miller Professor of English at Columbia University, where he has taught since 1985. His award-winning books include The Year of Lear: Shakespeare in 1606; Shakespeare and the Jews; 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare; Contested Will; the anthology Shakespeare in America. He has also co-authored and presented two BBC documentaries: Shakespeare: The King’s Man and The Mysterious Mr. Webster.
Shapiro serves on the Board of Directors of the Royal Shakespeare Company, is Shakespeare Scholar-in-Residence at New York’s Public Theater, and has been inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and received an NEH Public Scholar Award for 2017-18 for a book on Shakespeare in America.
