Tomorrow my students are presenting their final group projects on Titus Andronicus. They pitched the projects to me in class last week, and some of them sound fantastic. Most of the students came up with some really interesting - and sometimes unexpected - takes on themes and characters, and how they should be considered in light of current issues and trends. more "Wrestling Titus – The Final Takedown"
Because considering one conference in one week isn't enough, I'm organizing a panel at the Sixteenth Century Studies and Conference this fall. Sponsored by Iter and Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies, it should be good fun. more "SCSC Panel Announced"
OK. So I've begun my DH activities for the day. You can follow me at DH: Diane Jakacki. I'll be tweeting throughout the extravaganza, but I'm already finding that I'm being more focused on getting things accomplished. Submitted my Fall ENGL1102 course description, and after the good feedback at RSA I'm going to expand the concept of student digital editions with a dialogic examination of the history plays, using the Queen's Men's The Famous Victories as a counterpoint to Shakespeare's Henriad. This is going to be fun!
