Humanities Without Boundaries

7:30-9 p.m.
Varsity Hall, Union South
Faced with the challenge of revisiting The Tempest as a 21st century novel – Hag-Seed – Margaret Atwood chose to cast Ariel as a hacker who uses modern audio visual and digital technology to create illusions. In this lecture, she will describe the process, and the problems she had to solve. If Shakespeare were alive today he'd be using holographs! Presented in partnership with the Wisconsin Book Festival, Promega, and the Wisconsin Union Directorate Distinguished Lecture Series.
