BLESSINGS & CURSES: THE DESIRE FOR INFLUENCE

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
Thursday, October 1
10:30 am

In both Shakespeare’s time and now, humans strive for influence through words. The verbal dexterity of Shakespeare’s characters to either bless or curse their family and foe continues to resonate in today’s world of 280-character assassinations on Twitter. But which social sphere is more powerful, the royal court or social media? Join Seana McKenna and others as they compare and contrast the power of Shakespeare’s curses with the tweets of contemporary influencers.
