TUESDAY, 19 OCTOBER 2021, 6:00PM – 7:00PM (also live-streaming).

How do Shakespeare’s familiar plays Othello and Romeo and Juliet reflect the early modern preoccupation with race and emerging concepts of colour-based racism? How do these ideas play out in early modern as well as in contemporary performance?
