Free Folgers Birthday Lecture Tonight: Recipes for Thought: Shakespeare and the Art of the Kitchen

This is a little bit of a late notice, but if you are looking to do something tonight in honor of Shakespeare’s birthday, the Folgers has something for ya.

Wendy Wall, a Professor of English Literature at Northwestern University, delivers the annual birthday lecture entitled Recipes for Thought: Shakespeare and the Art of the Kitchen.

Wendy Wall has a wide-range of interests, which include editorial theory, gender, national identity, the history of authorship, Renaissance poetry, food studies, housework, theatrical practice, and Jell-O. Professor Wall is author of Imprint of Gender: Authorship and Publication in the English Renaissance and Staging Domesticity: Household Work and English Identity in Early Modern Drama, which was a finalist for the James Russell Lowell prize awarded by the MLA and a 2002 Choice Outstanding Academic Title Award Winner. A former trustee for the Shakespeare Association of America, she is currently at work on a book entitled Strange Kitchens: Knowledge and Taste in English Recipe Books, 1550-1750.

Sponsored by the Folger Institute’s Center for Shakespeare Studies, this lecture is free and open to the public.
