Lecture by Kate Chedgzoy. Children, according to historian Peter Laslett, were 'everywhere' in Renaissance England. Shakespeare's plays are no exception. This lecture will juxtapose the voices and actions of Shakespeare's child characters with traces of real life Renaissance childhoods in an effort to understand what it meant to be a child in Shakespeare's world.

The lecture will launch Shakespeare and Childhood (CUP) edited by Kate Chedgzoy, S Greenhalgh and R Shaughnessy.
