Glyndŵr University and Shakespeare

October 10, 2011

Shakespeare, Owain Glyndŵr and the future of higher education in North East Wales

 

Press Release:

The Vice-Chancellor of Glyndŵr University is to speak candidly before a public audience about the links between Shakespeare, Owain Glyndŵr and the future of his university.

A talk by Professor Michael Scott will open the university’s 2011/12 Inaugural and Professorial Lecture Series on Thursday 13 October at 6.15pm.

The event, in the Catrin Finch Centre on Glyndŵr University’s Plas Coch campus in Wrexham, will explore the warmth shown by Shakespeare in his plays towards the people of Wales.

It will trace the visionary path outlined by Owain Glyndŵr, who is mentioned in Shakepeare’s Henry IV Part One, from a 1406 letter to the King of France about universities in Wales to the creation of Glyndŵr University 600 years later.

Event organiser Katie Dutton said: “This year’s professorial lecture series offers the public a unique chance to hear from Glyndŵr University’s Vice-Chancellor sharing his thoughts as chief executive of the university and speaking about his expertise as a Shakespeare scholar.

“Glyndŵr University is dedicated to serving the people of Wrexham and north east Wales and events like this allow us to share the university’ collective knowledge and expertise with the wider public.”

Professor Scott’s lecture is the first of five in the university’s 2011/12 Professorial Lecture series. The events are designed to provide, free of charge, an opportunity for the public to learn more about the university’s research and expertise.
