YouTube Video: “Academic Libraries and the Shakespeare Authorship Debate”

Part of my interests in decolonization includes the subjugation of certain knowledges in the academy. One of the most widely suppressed discourses in most universities is that of skepticism over the identity of “William Shakespeare” and the theory that Shakespeare was Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford. My recent public lecture at the Winnipeg Public Library, Academic Libraries and the Shakespeare Authorship Debate, looks at the role of academic libraries in contributing to this subjugation, through biased collections development and pejorative classification and subject headings.
