Professor Tiffany Stern: Shakespeare’s Lavs and Loo Paper (SOLD OUT)

Professor Tiffany Stern: Shakespeare’s Lavs and Loo Paper (SOLD OUT)

hero
In this light-hearted but informative talk, Tiffany Stern explores the story of Shakespeare’s loos. She examines the use and placement of jakes, close stools and chamber pots, as well as methods for relieving oneself outside. She then looks at the range of materials that might be used before the invention of loo paper. Understanding loos can help reveal aspects of Shakespeare’s subtext, she argues, but, equally, plays could be the subtext, or matter, of loos.
