Mori Nakatani | Program-Specific Research Fellow | Shakespeare Studies, Theatre and Performance Studies

My research mainly focuses on the translations, productions and adaptations of Shakespeare’s works in Japan, looking at the cultural negotiation that takes place in these works. I am interested in the process in which Japanese modern theatre developed its own language through adopting Shakespearean plays.
