Bearing Witness: Reading James Baldwin in the 21st Century

(A Critical Anthology)

“Perhaps I did not succumb to ideology . . . because I have never seen myself as a spokesman. I am a witness. In the church in which I was raised you were supposed to bear witness to the truth. Now, later on, you wonder what in the world the truth is, but you do know what a lie is.”—James Baldwin, Interview by Julius Lester

“Remapping Gender in Shakespeare’s Europe”

 

This is a seminar at the European Shakespeare Research Association (ESRA) conference in Rome from July 9-12, 2019. 

http://esra2019.it/

Taking Shakespeare and his theatrical world as a temporal and locative point of departure, this seminar brings together papers engaging with depictions of gender in different nations of people and across political borders from the 16th century to the present. With numerous studies over the last four decades that address gender in Shakespeare’s works and on stage, we aim to explore how gender is theorised, staged, and depicted across national and cultural boundaries.
