Dr Laura Tosi, Associate Professor of English Literature at Università Ca' Foscari, Venice. Her research focuses on textual and cultural analysis of Elizabethan and Jacobean drama, especially gender and adaptation studies.

Renaissance England found similar characteristics to Venice with it's cosmopolitan glamour and the image of its own aspirations as a maritime trading nation. Dr Laura Tosi (Università Ca'Foscari, Venice) is co-editor of 'Visions of Venice in Shakespeare', and is coming to UCL as holder of an International Teaching Excellence Bursary. She will speak about the complex and fascinating ways in which Shakespeare's imagination responded to this strange and magical city.
