Toby Emert (Project Director: March 2021 to present)
Shakespeare and Digital Storytelling

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

“Shakespeare and Digital Storytelling” is 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 the institute, which 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.
