Subject:    Shakespeare Courses in Rome

Dr. Gregory Roper and Dr. Andrew Moran of the University of Dallas 
invite you to join them in Rome next summer for Shakespeare's Baroque 
Rome, for adults, or Shakespeare in Italy, for high school students.

Shakespeare's Baroque Rome is a ten-day program (June 24-July 3) in 
which teachers, graduate students, and other lovers of Shakespeare will 
study his late works in light of Baroque art and architecture. The 
course takes place at the University of Dallas' lovely Rome campus, and 
three hours of 5000-level credit are available. Most every day will 
include seminars, excursions around Rome, and time for wine at the forno 
patio, walks around the vineyard, and conversation at the cappuccino 
bar. Please visit http://www.udallas.edu/academics/summer/adults/baroque 
for more information.

In Shakespeare in Italy (July 6-23) high school students earn three 
hours of college credit by studying three of Shakespeare's Italian 
plays, Julius Caesar, The Merchant of Venice, and Othello, and touring 
Rome most every day except for a four-day trip to Venice and Padua. The 
plays not only lead the students to consider questions of love, honor, 
freedom, and self-government but also introduce them to Italy, where 
each city becomes another classroom. Small group discussions and writing 
tutorials prepare students for college. Please visit
