Special News & Events
The Nerve is a podcast produced by the English department at Waterford Institute of Technology. Each episode brings together staff and students to discuss a range of topics, including English literature, cultural events and perhaps a dollop of critical theory here and there. Upcoming episodes will also feature special guests.
In this episode, Jenny is joined by Dr. Kate McCarthy, fellow English lecturer (and our resident Shakespeare conspiracy theorist) and first year students Béibhínn O’Sullivan and Dean Cusack Lynch, who are currently studying the module Shakespeare: Drama and Film. The podcast discusses our enduring attachment to Shakespeare, the film adaptations and reinterpretations of his plays, and whether he, in fact, is the real author behind the best known works in the English language.
