Suit the Leader to the Word, The Word to the Gender

Gender and Leadership in Julius Caesar, Isla Hall

Monday, 25th February 16:00. Darwin, Peter Brown Room

In this interactive workshop, you’ll analyse in teams your character’s leadership style in a particular speech, and how their speech style might be gendered.  Then together we’ll ask how performative gender, and gender in performance, might influence our implicit bias of women in leadership positions.  This workshop will run for about 90 minutes and will be of value to anyone interested in Shakespeare, performance, gender and/or leadership.

Knowledge of Julius Caesar is not required for participation.
