A two-week institute for 25 school teachers on Shakespeare and adaptation, from folk tales to digital storytelling.

Located outside Atlanta, Agnes Scott College (ASC) proposes “Gen Z, Shakespeare, and Digital Storytelling,” a new two-week summer institute for 25 English teachers of grades 9-12. The theme of “translation,” as a means to contextualize Shakespeare’s art and to construct contemporary meaning, underpins ASC’s institute. It will be taught by an interdisciplinary team composed of a Project Director in English Education, a Professor of English and Shakespearean scholar, a Professor of Art, and an Associate Professor of History, supported by a consultant digital curator, an experienced theater educator, and two accomplished K-12 teachers. The institute will guide participants in an in-depth study of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, and Hamlet, exploring the plays’ folk and fairy tales roots as well as 21st-century approaches to teaching Shakespeare, including digital storytelling (DST).
