Comment:        Re: SHK 15.1619 Shakespeare as a Major Requirement

Back in 1996 or 1997, a necon group located in Washington D.C. claimed
that English Departments in the U.S. were no longer requiring that
Shakespeare and that cultural studies courses had or were replacing
literature courses. Taking time off from his duties as spokesman for the
NRA, Charlton Heston was involved. Blowhard columnist Jonathan Yardley
picked up the story. Several academics responded and showed the claims
for Shakespeare's reduced presence were incorrect. The specifics are
available in he opening pages of my book Unspeakable ShaXXXspeares.

Students majoring or minoring in English at the Memorial University of
Newfoundland are required to complete at least one half-year Shakespeare
course (Comedies and Histories; Tragedies and Romances).  We also offer
two fourth-year courses annually: English History Plays; Roman and Greek
Plays.
