The great Renaissance and Shakespeare scholar Frances Yates lived for over half a century at Claygate, near Kingston-upon-Thames, and to mark the 50th anniversary of her book The Art of Memory, Kingston Shakespeare Seminar will host a one-day conference on her life and work at the Rose: a playhouse inspired by her theory of the ‘theatre of the world’. Close to where Yates wrote her books, participants will be asked to evaluate their current significance, and to reflect on her ideas about Europe, empire, occult philosophy, academies, architecture, memory, performance, intellectual history, and the place of a scholarly community in the modern world.
