Richard Pettengill to present at Digital Chicago Seminar

On Monday, November 13, Associate Professor of Theater Richard Pettengil presents in the Digital Chicago Seminar on his research entitled “Shakespeare in Chicago.” Come to the CCP at noon to enjoy lunch and learn from your colleagues.

Shakespeare’s plays have been performed in Chicago ever since the city’s incorporation in 1837. This project traces the history of Shakespeare in Chicago alongside the history of the city itself, looking at the sites of its historic – and in some cases, long-destroyed – theaters, as well as the role that these plays have played in establishing the city’s evolving cultural identity and its vibrant theater scene.
