The Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa


The Shakespeare Society of Southern Africa traditionally holds a triennial congress. The previous congress took place in Grahamstown/Makhanda in 2016. The next congress takes place in Cape Town in May 2019, and will comprise three events: the academic conference, “Shakespeare and Social Justice: Scholarship and Performance in an Unequal World”; a two-day workshop for teachers, titled “my shakespeare”; and “Making Shakespeare”, a platform for theatre makers.

Details of previous SSOSA conferences are available here, and reports on other Shakespeare conferences held in recent years are archived here. A number of papers first presented at these conferences have been published as articles in Shakespeare in Southern Africa
