Description

Exploring Race in Othello: Past and Present


Through a discussion series with six sessions, community members will read Shakespeare’s famous play, Othello, examining the play for its themes of love and jealousy and as a potential origin tale of European racism and discrimination. We will discuss what Othello means to us today and read it alongside recent adaptations including Toni Morrison’s performance piece, Desdemona, and the 2001 film O set in an American private high school.
This course will be co-taught by Deborah Uman and Amanda Chestnut and runs week on Thursdays beginning April 30th and ending June 4th
