Year 13 English Literature students had attended a conference held by University lecturers on Othello, one of their set texts to analyse for their exams. 4 speakers had addressed various elements of the Shakespearean play: the first had addressed dramatic structure, the second looked at a comparison between Cinthio’s “Moor of Venice” and Othello , the third had covered feminism and the last described ways to deconstruct the text to grasp it’s intent. Students had reported finding the trip useful, building on their existing knowledge of the play:

“I really liked the first speaker. He introduced some concepts I hadn’t heard of before, like Anthropological dualism, and applied it to the play which was interesting to discuss.” – Filip Majdzinski
