After we read Facebook and Twitter to find out what's happening, we turn to Shakespeare to make sense of it. This course will look at urgent twenty-first-century issues interpreted through Shakespeare's plays and related contemporary criticism and performances. Such issues might include political tyranny, war, trauma, race, sexual harrassment, gender, queerness, disability, body-type discrimination, colonialism, environmentalism, animal-human relations.Note: Students cannot obtain credit for both ENGL 3260 and ENGL 3269.
