Representation, Where Art Though? Shakespeare and Race, September 26


Join us for a conversation about the representation of BIPOC in Shakespeare’s work and productions. 

Saturday, September 26th, 2020 from 3:00pm – 4:30pm Eastern Time (2 – 3:30 pm Central Time)

The free event is hosted by the Dallas Public Library and features three speakers:

  • GWU English professor Alexa Alice Joubin (whose book Race examines racial discourses in global contexts); her article “Doing Shakespeare While Black” tells the stories of minority actors who wish to perform Shakespeare, Ibsen, and “mainstream” plays rather than being recruited to “do a black play.”
  • University of Pennsylvania English professor Ania Loomba (a leading voice in postcolonial studies and the author of Shakespeare, Race and Colonialism, among numerous other books). She researches and teaches early modern literature, histories of race and colonialism, postcolonial studies, feminist theory, and contemporary Indian literature and culture.
  • Playwright Caleen Jennings (MFA, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, and author of Playing Juliet / Casting Othello).
