Professor Marjorie Garber (Harvard University) will lead seminar participants in a close reading of a single Shakespeare play, an act a day, attending to the language of the plays, scene by scene, act by act, word by word. Discussions will focus on the text and what it reveals. Conversations may generate theories of reading and of language as well as theories of Shakespearean “meaning.”
STIPENDS AND EXPENSES: Participation in an institute carries a stipend of $1,500. The National Humanities Center will cover the cost of travel, lodging, meals, and texts.
ACCOMMODATIONS: Participants will have individual apartments in a residence hotel within ten minutes of the Center. The Center will provide bus service to and from the hotel.
DEADLINE: Applications must be postmarked by March 6, 2009.
