Winona State University
Senior University: Shakespeare in Performance (ended)
#: 4300001   ID: CECT 0301   Section: 63  
This class is offered in conjunction with the Great River Shakespeare Festival (GRSF) during July, and we will take a performance approach. To that end, GRSF actors and directors will meet with us during class times to discuss the plays; I will list relevant films that are available to watch (optional) on reserve at the WSU Library or via streaming. The plays should be read before we meet, and your full preparation beforehand will assure an active and productive classroom experience.  The course fee includes center seats to all three GRSF performances.

I earned my B.A. in English from Colorado College.  I couldn’t decide what to do with this degree, so I took some time off and, on a lark, moved to Lake Tahoe.  Much to my parents’ dismay, I ended up dealing cards in northern Nevada for seven years.  Realizing that this was a dead end, I returned to the University of Nevada, Reno and earned my M.A. and Ph.D. in English, specializing in the English Renaissance (specifically Shakespeare) with minors in linguistics and poetry.  I have taught various Shakespeare classes at Winona State University for 29 years and published articles about Shakespeare in Shakespeare and Higher Education, Cahiers Elisabethains, Language and Literature, and Literature and Psychology.
