Professor Hall delivers the 2018 Sam Wanamaker Fellowship Lecture. Kim F. Hall is the Lucyle Hook Chair of English and a Professor of Africana Studies at Barnard College. Her book, Things of Darkness: Economies of Race and Gender in Early Modern England, published in 1996 by Cornell University Press, used a black feminist approach to interpret Renaissance literature. She is currently working on two book projects: Sweet Taste of Empire, which examines the roles of race, aesthetics and gender in the Anglo-Caribbean sugar trade during the 17th century and a new project, Othello was My Grandfather: Shakespeare and the African Diaspora, which discusses Afrodiasporic appropriations of Othello.
