How did Kurosawa influence George Lucas' Star Wars? Why do critics repeatedly use the adjective Shakespearean to describe Gong Joon-ho's Parasite (2019)? How do East Asian cinema and theatre portray vocal disability and transgender figures?

The George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs Book Launch Series and National Resource Center are proud to present a lecture by Dr. Alexa Alice Joubin on her latest book, Shakespeare and East Asia (Oxford University Press). The talk will be followed by a live Q&A with the audience moderated by NRC Program Associate, Richard J. Haddock.

The event will be free, online, and open to the public. Find out more about the event and register through Eventbrite.  

Registration will close at 5 pm EST on Thursday, February 18. Links to join the webinar via Zoom will be sent out shortly after registration is closed. A recording of the event will be available afterwards and shared with all whom RSVP.
