“Shakespeare, Race, and Queer Sexuality” disturbs the longstanding divide between early modern critical race studies and early modern queer studies. While both fields emerged around the same time about three decades ago, they have led relatively independent existences despite the advent of intersectional critiques. The symposium explores the reasons for this disciplinary segregation among scholars and scholarship and initiates a series of conversations that envisions a productive dialogue for future engaged, collaborative work.
