Kingsley Weatherhead Lecture in Shakespeare Studies: Richard Rambuss

Professor Rambuss’s talk, “Literature and Carnival: Mardi Gras Shakespeare,” describes some of the surprising links among Mardi Gras crews/floats in the early 20th Century, early modern literary figures, and race, ethnicity, and power in New Orleans. Have a look at the beautiful image on the attached poster to see just one of the fascinating images Professor Rambuss will discuss.

Professor Rambuss researches early modern poetry, esp. by Spenser, Crashaw, Shakespeare, and Milton, and questions of queerness, sexuality, and power. In addition to researching Mardi Gras, he is currently working on bookson Milton and on the films of Stanley Kubrick.

The Kingsley Weatherhead Lecture in Shakespeare Studies is an annual lecture intended to promote the undergraduate study of Shakespeare at the University of Oregon and is made possible by a generous gift from Gloria Lee in honor of her husband the late Robert Lee.
