LALW423 Shakespeare and the Other: Race, Religion, Gender, and Sexuality On the Elizabethan Stage 3cr


The Other refers to people that are marginalized
and persecuted owing to race, religion,
sexuality, or gender identity. This course
studies theatrical portrayals and philosophical
discussions of the Other during Age of
Shakespeare. In the assigned plays (mostly though
not exclusively by Shakespeare), students
encounter complicated dramatic treatments of race
(Titus Andronicus, Othello, The Tempest),
religion (The Jew of Malta, The Merchant of
Venice) and gender/sexuality (Edward II, Twelfth
Night, The Roaring Girl). Supplementary readings
are drawn from poems, essays, and treatises from
classical antiquity and the late 16th/early 17th
century. Written assignments include one critical
paper and a final project combining writing and
artwork.
