Details

William Shakespeare’s plays are set in Europe, Asia, and Africa, from classical times to the Renaissance. How did he and other authors, mapmakers, and readers of his day imagine foreign and often-exotic settings, the “other” as well as the familiar? What roles do place, identity, and travel play in his comedies, tragedies, and histories? Armchair travel with the Bard to “here, and everywhere” by exploring these questions and more through maps, atlases, and illustrations of Shakespeare’s time and beyond. View the online exhibition.
