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"
Yesterday morning we ran three panels on digital teaching methods for early modern studies, sponsored by the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies. Great presentations by Michael Ullyot, Tom Lolis, Sarah Neville, Tara Lyons, Jason Boyd, David Stymeist, Patricia Fumerton, Eric Nebeker, and Christine McWebb. We generated some good discussion and I got to talk about My boy Tarlton. I'll post more info later, but it was particularly gratifying to hear another speaker in an unrelated session refer to our work (never had that happen before!)
