Join us to explore two of Shakespeare's most popular comedies through a mix of lectures, DVD clips and group discussion.  We will concentrate particularly on the feisty heroines of these plays, looking at how society tries to control their rebellious instincts, but also at how their apparently more biddable 'sisters' challenge the system by other means. 

Please note this course will be studied remotely.
