Diversifying Shakespeare, Ruben Espinosa Feb 2016

Diversifying Shakespeare, Ruben Espinosa

Ruben Espinosa

Critical race studies in Shakespeare have generated a vital body of scholarship that affords us deeper insight both to racial formations in early modern England and to the way contemporary understandings of racial difference infuse Shakespeare with a culturally relevant currency. However, critical race studies remain relatively marginalized within the broader field of Shakespeare studies. This essay reviews and underscores the scholarship that has kindled an important conversation about race in Shakespeare in an attempt to bring it to the fore, and it draws attention to the promise behind ethnic studieswith particular attention to Latino and Latina identitywithin ...

“Turning To The Stranger In Shakespeare’S Henry V”, Ruben Espinosa

Ruben Espinosa

This collection is currently under contract with MLA. With a twenty-first century American student demographic in mind, I aim to interrogate how attention to the negotiation of alterity in Henry V registers Shakespeare’s keen attention to the role of the immigrant/alien/stranger/other in the nation-building enterprise of the play, and also how it reveals the play’s rich cultural currency for today’s underrepresented students, whose own epistemological standpoints are informed by issues of immigration, xenophobia, and the imagined value of homogeneity.
