Patricia Cahill -  "Archival Homeplaces: Shakespeare and African American Performance in the Early Twentieth Century” @ Richard B. Russell Jr. Special Collections Libraries Building, Room 277 | Athens | Georgia | United States

Patricia Cahill will deliver the 2018 Symposium on the Book’s plenary talk, entitled “Archival Homeplaces: Shakespeare and African American Performance in the Early Twentieth Century.”

Cahill is associate professor of English at Emory University, where she specializes in Shakespeare and early modern literature, especially drama. She is the author of Unto the Breach: Martial Formations, Historical Trauma, and the Early Modern Stage (OUP, 2008). She has also published articles and book chapters on such subjects as military technology and mathematics, animal matter and affect theory, and the senses in performance. She is currently working on two projects: a book that examines the affective dynamics of early modern stage properties, especially animal skins, and a study of Black Shakespeare and the Jim Crow South.

Cahill’s talk will be followed by a small reception.

This event is free and open to the public.
