In his long-awaited Shakespeare’s Birthday Lecture, Dr. Ian Smith (Lafayette College) examines early modern methods of manufacturing blackness onstage.
He will do this using the royal entertainments of Shakespeare’s Love’s Labor’s Lost as a dramatic point of departure to expand our knowledge of early modern race.
This event is part of Searching for Shakespeare: Celebrating 400 Years of Shakespeare’s First Folio, our April 2023 festival in partnership with the Folger Shakespeare Library. Image credit: Lloyd Wolf.
