Great, Online Images Relevant to the Essex Conspiracy?

Subject:    Great, Online Images Relevant to the Essex Conspiracy?

 

Hi all,

 

In a couple weeks I’m giving a TEDX talk here in Bergen about how Shakespeare was an innovative businessman. That deadline is helping me to get some good thinking done for a chapter in a collection of essays I’m editing. In the talk, I’m making a brief point about the Essex Conspiracy as well as the (alleged) “I am Richard the Second: know you not that?” quip by her majesty.

 

Can anybody help me find a nice, high-resolution image related to the Essex conspiracy?  TEDX talks are all heavy on the visuals, and I’m not finding much right now.

 

Sincerely,

Brad

BSA Day School: ‘We’ll enter all together’: active approaches for drawing students into the world of the play

 

Please find attached an announcement for a Teaching Shakespeare Day School, led by James Stredder, taking place from 9:30am to 5:30am on 8th November at the Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon. The event is free to all members of the BSA, but you must reserve in advance. To book a place, or ask a question, please contact Sarah Olive ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). 

 


An online version of this announcement is available here: http ://www . britishshakespeare . ws/event/well-enter-all-together-bsa-teaching-shakespeare-day-school-book-now/

Best wishes,

James Harriman-Smith
(Web and Communications Officer)

 

The UK’s largest professional association of teachers, researchers, theatre practitioners, writers and enthusiasts of Shakespeare

 

As part of its educational work, the British Shakespeare Association will be holding a Teaching Shakespeare Day School, led by James Stredder, author of The North Face of Shakespeare: activities for teaching the plays (CUP 2009). The BSA is most grateful to The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust for its generous help in promoting the event and for providing the facilities of the  Shakespeare Centre.

 

‘We’ll enter all together’: active  approaches  for drawing students into the world of the play

 

Saturday 8th November 2014    9.30 a.m. – 5.30 p.m. 

  The Shakespeare Centre,  Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon                    

FREE to BSA members. £5 (includes coffee and tea) for non-members. Booking essential.

 

“You’re starting work on a Shakespeare play. You hope your students will become interested enough to leave your class eager to read on for themselves… Perhaps there will be a better chance of this happening if students, in some way, enter the world of the play together, gaining confidence, as they do so, in hearing, speaking and reading its language, examining its narrative and encountering its characters. “   

 

The day school is for anyone who wishes to develop their use of active methods of teaching Shakespeare, regardless of the age-groups or levels of  ability with which they are working – though for those teaching English GCSE, new Dept. for Education requirements that students should study ‘whole texts in detail’ (including two plays by Shakespeare), may make the day particularly relevant. 

 

The day will consist of a morning session (on language) and an afternoon session (on narrative and character). Each session will begin with activities on a common text, Much Ado About Nothing, followed by work in option groups, exploring teaching approaches further. Participants will  be asked to bring along copies of the plays  on which they wish to work, to these option groups.

 

Those able to stay on in Stratford for the evening, may like to contact the Royal Shakespeare Theatre to book for the 7.15 p.m. performance of Love’s Labour’s Won (commonly known as Much Ado About Nothing). There will also be a farewell  ‘late-night seminar’  following the play.

 

Booking      

To book, email Dr. Sarah Olive, Chair of the BSA Education Committee:    This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

For enquiries, telephone  01904 323 473. 

 

This event is free for current members of the BSA. Please note that the membership year runs September-September, so do remember to renew before the event. 

 

The BSA is offering free membership to schools for the 2014-15 academic year.   Please apply at:

The cost for non-members of the BSA will be £5  (includes coffee and tea), to be paid on arrival. 

 

PLEASE FORWARD THIS SHEET TO  ANYONE WHOM YOU THINK MIGHT BE INTERESTED. THANK YOU!

It’s not “my” app. I reviewed the iOS version, because that’s what I write about. There is also an Android version:

[Editor’s Note: Actually, the Shakespeare App is the work of Ron Severdia who redesigned the SHAKSPER web site and hosts it at PlayShakespeare.com, another of his enterprises. I have used the app on both platforms and it works equally well on both. –Hardy]

 
 
Shakesbeer

I am astounded that this forum seems oblivious of the latest Shakespeare performance medium, Shakesbeer, or Drunk Shakespeare.  Even the Wall Street Journal took notice (http://online.wsj.com/articles/alcohol-fueled-shakespeare-productions-serve-classics-with-a-twist-1409106604) and word has spread among the discerning readers of Open Culture (http://www.openculture.com/2014/09/drunk-shakespeare.html) and avid viewers of YouTube, Vimeo, and others who cherish the intersection of drama and drams.

 

How could this be!

 

Cheers, and cheers again,

Al Magary
