Description

This course will examine how Shakespeare and his contemporaries dealt with ethnic and religious difference in their dramatic work. Before England was a colonial power, it was beset by worries of infiltration by “others” both foreign and domestic. At the same time, it imagined a variety of ways of assimilating those “others.” The Renaissance stage became a locus for concomitantly exploring racism and tolerance. We will read authors like Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, and Christopher Marlowe. Along with situating their work in relevant historical context, this course will ask broader questions about racism, nationalism, and “multiculturalism.”
