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.
Thanks to generous support from the National Endowment for the 
Humanities, Barnes & Noble, Simon & Schuster, W.W. Norton, and Mr.
