“These Late Eclipses”: Shakespeare and the Early Modern Sky

Stephannie Gearhart, Chair and Professor
BGSU Department of English

At an exciting and, to many, unsettling time in the history of science, what was an artist like William Shakespeare thinking about the solar system and humans’ place in it? This talk will consider how Shakespeare drew inspiration from the skies and contemporary scientific debates as he created works that continue to speak to us today.

7:30-8:30 Public Lecture
