“Shakespeare and Digital Storytelling” is a two-week summer institute for 25 English teachers of grades 9-12, and it will be offered as a residential program on the campus of Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia, in the summer of 2022. Taught by an interdisciplinary team of scholars, artists, and educators, the Institute will guide participants in studying A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, and The Taming of the Shrew, exploring the plays’ folk and fairy tales roots, as well as 21st-century approaches to teaching Shakespeare, including digital storytelling (DST).
