About the Program

Shakespeare in Film

January 14:The Feud as Fate in Romeo and Juliet

In this play, fate isn’t a transcendent non-human force; it takes the form of the feud between the lovers’ families. Romeo and Juliet try to grow up into their gendered identities by resisting its patriarchal demands.

Join Brown University English professor and author Coppélia Kahn as she examines Romeo and Juliet in Artis—Naples’ Shakespeare in Film series.

January 11: Romeo and Juliet (Movie Preview)

Prior to attending Coppélia Kahn’s “The Feud as Fate in Romeo and Juliet” lecture on January 14, join your fellow Shakespeare in Film participants for a screening of Romeo + Juliet (1996), directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Leonardo di Caprio and Claire Danes, on the Artis—Naples campus.

Tickets include both days, lecture and movie preview.
