THE SHEFFIELD CENTRE FOR EARLY MODERN STUDIES VISITING SPEAKER SERIES presents:
Prof. Quentin Skinner (QMUL)

“Why Shylock loses his case: judicial rhetoric in
The Merchant of Venice”

Quentin Skinner is the Barber Beaumont Professor of the Humanities at Queen Mary, University of London.  He is one of the most influential historians of the past fifty years, and is credited with developing the ‘Cambridge School’ of political thought.  His many publications–too many to name here–have become central to the study of early modern history. Prof. Skinner holds honorary degrees from eleven universities (including Harvard, UChicago, St. Andrew’s, and Oxford), and is a fellow of the British Academy, Royal Historical Society, and many other academic organizations from around the world.
