Othello, Race and Youtube

Synopsis
A playlist of YouTube videos, uploaded by Stephen O’Neill, which can be used to generate discussion about ‘race’ in Othello. A number of them were suggested by students in O’Neill’s Third Year EN352 Seminar on Contemporary Shakespeare at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, 2011. O’Neill’s book Shakespeare and YouTube: New Media Forms of the Bard (Arden Shakespeare/ Bloomsbury) was published in 2014 and discusses some of these videos.
