Are there any interesting Richard III spinoffs available on video?

Subject:        Q: Film Course

We're talking about starting up a Shakespeare on Film course, and I would be
very grateful for suggestions from experienced hands about managing the
mechanical end of such a course--especially, about the problems of making the
filmed materials available to students outside the classroom.  The issue is
especially urgent at a commuter school where it is very difficult to get even
small groups of students, to say nothing of a whole class, together outside the
scheduled meeting time.   I'm also extremely open to suggestions about the best
way to quote, as it were, from tapes during lectures--is it acceptable under
the copyright laws to copy individual moments, so as to avoid having to spend
time fast-forwarding and reversing, for instance?  Any experience with laser
disks? And so on.

Does anyone know of British productions of medieval plays scheduled this summer
when I could see them -- August 7-17?  I would be glad to know either through
the SHAKSPER listserv or by e-mail to me at above address.

I would have been very sorry to miss the "Lincoln Cycle" [i.e., N.-Town] as
done splendidly in Lincoln Cathedral in summer, 1994.  Anything like that I
would be awfully glad to know of.

Thanks.  John

Subject:        The Future of Shakespeare

Here's an attempt at naivete, from one looking in from the world of theatre:

I wonder if others might like to speculate on the future of Shakespearean
Studies? Where are you "heading" with your research and how does that relate to
where you imagine the various schools of research into Shakespeare will get us
in the next 50 years or so? Will computers ever be trusted to help - witness
the distaste used to describe SHAXICON on this list - and will Shakespeare
scholars come to rely more on linking Communication studies, Semantics, as an
approach to these texts?

Why not dream a little a little dream with us...?
