Unto the Breach
Special Collections Libraries Building, Room 277

On Friday 12 October, please join us for a Symposium on the Book, featuring a a talk by invited speaker Patricia Cahill. Dr. Cahill's talk will be preceded by a rare books workshop from the collection of Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library at 11:00am.

Professor Cahill is Associate Professor of English at Emory University, where she specializes in Shakespeare and early modern literature, especially drama. She is the author of Unto the Breach: Martial Formations, Historical Trauma, and the Early Modern Stage (OUP, 2008). She has also published articles and book chapters on such subjects as military technology and mathematics, animal matter and affect theory, and the senses in performance. She is currently working on two projects: a book that examines the affective dynamics of early modern stage properties, especially animal skins, and a study of Black Shakespeare and the Jim Crow South.

Dr. Cahill’s talk will be followed by a small reception. All events are free and open to the public.
