The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 17.1009 Saturday, 18 November 2006
From: Folger Institute <
Date: Friday, 17 Nov 2006 16:10:54 -0500
Subject: Folger Conference on Shakespeare in American Education, 1607-1934
How did Shakespeare's plays become an integral component of America's
cultural literacy, its moral education, its civic formation? What
exemplary Shakespeares have American classrooms created, for what
purposes, and at what cross-purposes? Were there different Shakespeares
for different students? What are the records that scholars need to tell
the history of teaching Shakespeare in America and where are they found?
Please encourage those interested in these questions to attend
"Shakespeare in American Education, 1607-1934," a conference to be held
at the Folger Shakespeare Library on 16 and 17 March 2007.
