Gender Matters: Shakespeare's Comedies

This seminar will focus on Shakespeare’s comedies from a gender and queer studies perspective with particular reference to The Taming of the Shrew, The Comedy of Errors, As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Twelfth Night, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest. Among the issues addressed are (de-)constructions of femininity/masculinity, negotiations of (il)licit sexual desires, (re-)evaluations of androgyny, mechanisms of stereotyping and homophobia, and intersections between „gender, race and class“.
