Preface: "The 1995-96 NEH/Folger Institute on Teaching Shakespeare Through
Performance"

During the 1995-96 academic year a group of sixteen college teachers
participated in the National Endowment for the Humanities Institute at the
Folger Library on "Shakespeare Examined Through Performance." Directors of the
institute were Alan Dessen (University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill) and
Audrey Stanley (University of California, Santa Cruz).  It was organized by
Lena Orlin (Executive Director of the Folger Institute at the Folger
Shakespeare Library and now Executive Director of the Shakespeare Association
of America).  The institute met at the Folger Library one weekend each month
for nine months.  The program was funded by the National Endowment for the
Humanities and by the Folger Institute.

These rigorously scheduled weekends gave participants the opportunity to meet
and work with a variety of distinguished visitors--teachers, scholars, actors,
directors, and dramaturgs.  The group also worked on individual and group
projects and attended at least one performance each session.

Records of this institute are now available from SHAKSPER.  (Hardy Cook will
issue instructions for retrieving them.)

A public version of the records is available at the following website:

http://www.tamut.edu/english/folgerhp/folgerhp.htm

The website offers direct access all the information posted on SHAKSPER, and a
few added extras.

On behalf of the institute participants and leaders, I  am pleased to invite
you to visit the website or download our files from SHAKESPER.  I am
maintaining the website, so please address any comments or suggestions you have
to me.
