"The Nature of Whiteness in Henry V's Theater of the Earth", with Marjorie Rubright

Haldeman Room 041
Marjorie Rubright is associate professor of English at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Director of the Kinney Center for Interdisciplinary Renaissance Studies. She is the author of Doppelgänger Dilemmas: Anglo-Dutch Relations in Early Modern English Literature and Culture (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2014). Her current book project, A World of Words: Language, Earth and Embodiment in the Renaissance, traces the earthly substrates of renaissance lexical culture, examining period-specific ways of thinking about human sameness and difference that emerge when language and linguistic identity are imaginatively linked not only to ethnicized and racialized human bodies, but also to a diversity of earthly matter.
This event is free and open to the public.
The Early Modern Incubator Venn Vision group is supported by the Leslie Center for the Humanities.
