A conference investigating the historical role of Shakespeare in American classrooms. (12 months)

The Folger Institute Center for Shakespeare Studies will sponsor a conference investigating the historical role of Shakespeare in American classrooms. Based on original, commissioned research, this conference will define a new field of investigation that draws on the expertise of Shakespeareans, Americanists, and historians of education and rhetoric. Speakers will identify and investigate the critical moments and conditions under which Shakespeare’s plays entered the American curriculum. The scope of papers will encompass a range of classrooms (from secondary to university), time periods, and regions. Collectively, conference participants will construct revised and revitalized histories of the role of Shakespeare in American education.
