With financial support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences’ Aid for Interdisciplinary Sessions Fund.
Through a resonance of Shakespeare’s work and the major themes of Western philosophy, Mustapha Fahmi questions our presence in life and our human duty. What is recognition in a society that has only the word respect in its mouth? What is education when we only talk about training? How to combine ecology and ontology? Does a person define themselves by what they are or what they want to be? What is love without imagination? If the world is a stage, can we choose our role? These are all questions likely to concern the Canadian Society of Renaissance Studies, the Association of Professors of Canadian Universities and Colleges, as well as the larger community of the humanities.
