Scholarship and Performance: Teaching Shakespeare’s Plays

A two-week institute for twenty-five school teachers focusing on the themes of community and national identity in William Shakespeare’s plays The Merry Wives of Windsor, Macbeth, and King Lear.

Theatre for a New Audience (TFANA) proposes a two-week Summer Institute on Scholarship and Performance: Teaching Shakespeare’s Plays, to be held July 16-27, 2018, at TFANA’s Polonsky Shakespeare Center in Brooklyn, New York. Offered to a national group of 25 middle and high school teachers, the Institute introduces a carefully integrated approach for exploring text-based scholarship, contextual and original source material, language, and performance in three Shakespeare plays. This year’s participants will study THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, MACBETH, and KING LEAR under the guidance of leading Shakespeare scholars Julie Crawford (Columbia University) and Mario DiGangi (Lehman College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York), and master teaching artists and theatre practitioners Krista Apple and Claudia Zelevansky.
