Department Section Description: 

This seminar will explore various scenes and models of pedagogy and learning found within Shakespeare’s writings, in the sixteenth-century humanism and rhetorical theory that structured education and thinking for Shakespeare and other students in the early modern period, and in our own present and future classrooms. We will think about questions important to Shakespeare about teaching and learning, youth and experience, and theory and practice, alongside some real-world analogues and variations. This course is intended to be useful both for students with a strong interest in early modern studies as well as for those in other primary fields who anticipate teaching Shakespeare. The course will also provide some approaches to teaching, planning to teach, and talking about teaching literary and other texts.
