The story of “Shakespeare” in America is more than a history of books and performances. It is also a study of politics and society—of race, class, gender, and their intersections, of “culture” in the fullest sense of the word—all of which is deeply inflected by the real and imagined past of particular places The class will examine the Shakespearean textual, performance, and physical scene in Buffalo from the late 1800s to the present day and will investigate questions of race, class and culture in Shakespeare texts in performance. Planned field work includes sessions with distinguished members of Buffalo’s professional theatres, exploration of the archives and collections, as well as field trips to explore artistic and historic sites in the city of Buffalo. The work in our class will lay the foundation for our Working Arts Lab student’s special participation in the Folger Institute Workshop on “Gilding the Guilt: The Gilded Age, Craft Production, and the Construction of Cultural Capital” on April 27-30 here in Buffalo. This is a rare and by-invitation opportunity is available only to those in this class!
