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
