Touted by The New York Times as "the most prominent Renaissance scholar of his generation,," Harvard professor Stephen Greenblatt will present the Oklahoma Humanities Council's annual Oklahoma Lecture in the Humanities, "Shakespeare, Racial Memory, and Cultural History" Friday, February 25, 7 p.m., at the Kendall Theatre on the University of Tulsa campus.

Recognized as partly responsible for new theoretical explorations known as New Historian, Greenblatt has won many honors and awards, and he has lectured widely in the United States, Canada, Western and Eastern Europe, South America, Asia, and Australia.

Previously he taught English at the University of California in Berkley for 27 years, and he has also been a visiting professor in European universities in Paris, Turin, Florence, Triest, and Bologna, as well as Peking, China.

Many of Greenblatt's award winning books, including Marvelous Possessions: The Wonder of the New World (1991); Learning to Curse: Essays in Early Modern Culture (1990); and Shakespearean Negotiations: The Circulation of Social Energy in Renaissance England (1988), have been translated into several languages. Volumes edited by Greenblatt include The Norton Shakespeare (1997) and New World Encounters (1992). Greenblatt is also founding editor and co-chair of the scholarly journal, Representations.
