Subject:        New MA Course, The Shakespeare Institute

This is to announce a new MA course on 'Shakespeare,
Stratford-upon-Avon, and the Cultural History of Renaissance England',
based at the Shakespeare Institute, Stratford-upon-Avon.  The Institute
is a part of the University of Birmingham, and the course is offered in
conjunction with the School of Historical Studies.

The new interdisciplinary MA invites students to understand
Shakespeare's works in the context of the society for which and within
which he was writing. The course will be taught by a team of historians
and English literature scholars whose areas of expertise range from
local history and the English reformation to textual criticism and the
history of Shakespeare in performance.  It will draw on the resources of
the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, and students will have the opportunity
to see Shakespeare's plays on stage at the Stratford theatres of the
Royal Shakespeare Company.

We welcome suitably qualified applicants from both history and
literature backgrounds onto the course, which can be followed both full
and part time.

programme:
