Staging Race in Shakespeare’s Theatres
Wednesday 26 April 2023
4.00pm - 5.00pm
Fitzhugh Auditorium, Cohen Quad
This public lecture will explore racial impersonation and consider the role the archives have played in generating a theatrical history of Renaissance plays. It will ask what role decolonisation has to play in theatre historiography and delve into the materiality and aesthetics of racial impersonation in Shakespeare’s time. A reception with opportunity for book signing will follow the lecture.
