Patricia Cahill will deliver the 2018 Symposium on the Book’s plenary talk, entitled “Archival Homeplaces: Shakespeare and African American Performance in the Early Twentieth Century.”
Cahill is associate professor of English at Emory University, where she specializes in Shakespeare and early modern literature, especially drama. She is the author of Unto the Breach: Martial Formations, Historical Trauma, and the Early Modern Stage (OUP, 2008). She has also published articles and book chapters on such subjects as military technology and mathematics, animal matter and affect theory, and the senses in performance. She is currently working on two projects: a book that examines the affective dynamics of early modern stage properties, especially animal skins, and a study of Black Shakespeare and the Jim Crow South.
The UGA Main Library, Miller Learning Center, and Science Library will close at 11pm tonight, Wednesday, October 10. We plan to reopen all Libraries facilities at 10am on Thursday, October 11, pursuant to the University delayed opening announcement. Please watch for any additional announcements from the University that would further delay UGA’s reopening on Thursday.
