Don't miss the first MEMSI event of the semester!

Please join us on Friday, Sept. 7, at 3:30 p.m. for Dr. Gail Kern Paster’s talk: “Shylock, Othello, and the Theatrical Coding of Difference: Picturing Shakespeare at the Folger.”  Images of Shylock and Othello from the Folger Shakespeare Library image database show how these figures of the Jew and the Moor as Other have been represented since the eighteenth century. These images also show how they have been presented for consumption and display. Setting images side by side has great potential for understanding the theatrical coding of difference in an historical trajectory. The talk is designed for a broad audience.

This event is part of the Dean’s Lecture on Shakespeare series and is co-sponsored by the Dean’s Scholars in Shakespeare program.  The talk will be held in Post Hall on the Mt. Vernon campus and will be followed by a reception.

Hope to see you there!
