Under the guidance of leading Shakespeare scholars and theatre practitioners, scholarly investigation, public performance, and literary study are linked in an organic approach that will deepen teachers’ familiarity with primary source material and historical context, enrich their understanding of textual analysis and performance (and the relationship between the two), and enhance their ability to identify and teach common literary themes across a variety of Shakespeare’s plays. In doing so, the Institute aims to improve research and pedagogical practice, as well as to enliven the study of Shakespeare.
