David J. Baker, Peter G. Phialas Professor of English and Comparative Literature

We all know William Shakespeare was a consummate playwright, but how often do we remember he was also a savvy businessman? We’ll see how Shakespeare represents the commercial society of his day in dramas such as The Merchant of Venice and Timon of Athens, and consider the marketing implications of dramatic choices in Shakespeare’s time and in ours. David Baker will show us how to sell Shakespeare in the twenty-first century.

TIME: 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
