Kingsley Weatherhead Lecture in Shakespeare Studies: Frances Dolan

The UO English Department sponsored the 2015 Kingsley Weatherhead Lecture in Shakespeare Studies, “Know Your Foods: Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus and the Question of the Local,” by Frances Dolan, Distinguished Professor of English at the University of California at Davis, on February 19, 2015.

Professor Dolan’s lecture investigated and historicized the concept of “local foods,” in part via some violent family narratives in Shakespeare’s play. She is the author of numerous articles and books on Shakespeare among other topics. Her most recent book, True Relations: Reading, Literature, and Evidence in Seventeenth-Century England (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2013) is the winner of the 2014 John Ben Snow prize from the North American Conference on British Studies.

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.
