Wednesday Lunch at Lowy: Shakespeare, ideology and terrorism - Dr Simon Haines presentation

At the Wednesday Lunch at Lowy on 20 February, Dr Simon Haines, the Reader in English at the Australian National University, spoke on 'Shakespeare, ideology and terrorism'.

Or indeed about 'evil' in general?Simon Haines
