"Lose Her to an African": Race and Gender in William Shakespeare's The Tempest
Presented by Stephen Kim, Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of English
Abstract: This work is an excerpt of the first chapter of my dissertation, which examines the co-constitution of race, gender, and sexuality in early modern English texts. While The Tempest has served as a fertile point of departure for postcolonial and critical race scholars, my chapter seeks more to examine and articulate how race is working and constituted in the play itself. I argue that in The Tempest, race is inseparable from regulations of female sexuality and that this play necessitates an approach in which we look at race and gender together.
