To honour this milestone, the Fisher Library will be opening the year with a new exhibition that will explore how Shakespeare's works shaped ideas of the world beyond England. In addition, the exbition will explore how his plays imagined self and other through language, geography and mythology and how, in turn, the production of atlases, dictionaries, and histories influenced Shakespeare's world-making art.
