Join the Institute and the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies, National University of Ireland Galway, either in person or online, to celebrate the launch of Charles Macklin and the Theatres of London (Liverpool University Press, 2022), edited by Faculty Fellow Ian Newman, Associate Professor of English, and David O'Shaughnessy, Professor in the School of English and Creative Arts at the National University of Ireland Galway.
Read more about Charles Macklin, the Irish-born actor who is often referred to as "the father of the modern stage," in this article in the Irish Times by Professor O'Shaughnessy. It contains the intriguing subtitle: "Despite killing a fellow actor over a wig, he dominated 18th-century London theatre."
[Please note that the launch occurs during the short time every spring when there is only a four-hour time difference between Ireland and Indiana. The book launch is at 9 am EST and 1:00 pm in Ireland.]
