The Jew in Shakespeare

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Shakespeare’s portrayal of Jews in The Merchant of Venice has had a huge social and cultural impact on western society from the time it was written (the late 1500s) to today. It is arguably the most important literary portrait of Jews ever written. In this session, we will consider the play and view some excerpts from a recent film to decide whether or not Shakespeare may be considered a Judeophobe or antisemite.
