The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 20.0271 Wednesday, 27 May 2009
Date: Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Subject: Closing One Door, and Opening . . . ?
On Monday, May 25, I cleaned out my office at Bowie State University; on
June 1, 2009, my retirement after thirty-two years is official.
I, however, have a doctor who believes that I should teach a course of
two so that I can stay on a regular schedule and so that I can have a
live audience. These are only two of the many reasons he believes I
should continue to share what I have gained from my more than forty
years of teaching in higher education.
In addition to my teaching, I am an active scholar with various
publications in subjects ranging from Shakespeare on television to the
editing of electronic texts; I am co-editor, with Ian Lancashire, of
_Shakes-peares Sonnets and Louers Complaint, 1609_ and editor of an
electronic edition of _Venus and Adonis_ and _Lucrece_, part of the
edition of Shakespeare's _Poems_ I am preparing for the Internet
Shakespeare Editions. I was a founding member of SHAKSPER: The Global
Electronic Shakespeare Conference, one of the Internet's oldest and most
highly respected academic listservs. I have edited SHAKSPER since 1992;
for my work with it and my other scholarly activities, I was awarded the
University System of Maryland's Board of Regents Award for Excellence in
Scholarship in 1999.
If anyone knows of adjunct teaching opportunities in the Baltimore,
Annapolis, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia area, please let me
I am available to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses in the
following areas: Shakespeare (especially Shakespeare in performance in
the theater and on film and television), British Literature, drama, and
research methods and humanities computing and others.
I will gladly supply my CV, references, and previous syllabi upon request.
