The Deutsche Shakespeare-Gesellschaft (German Shakespeare Society) was founded in 1864. It is one of the oldest literary associations in Europe, if not the world, and has about 2,000 members. It promotes the investigation with William Shakespeare's works, particularly in the German-speaking countires. In doing so, it co-operates closely with scholars, teachers and artists.
