Shakespeare in the World Lecture Series: Shakespeare and Race

Wednesday, March 14

Community Theatre Parkway District

Shakespeare’s England was a profoundly xenophobic culture, with most people considering the Irish an entirely different race than the English, never mind people from Africa or the New World. As acceptance and equal treatment have become hallmarks of modern Western thought, Shakespeare has been conceived of as a humanist who transcended his culture’s biases, but is that always true? This lecture will look at all the different ways Shakespeare presented race in his plays.
