Shakespeare studies is a complementary minor for many programs. William Shakespeare's works, both on page and stage, have profoundly shaped our modern notions of human identity.
Why Shakespeare studies at Sewanee?
The minor in Shakespeare studies is an interdisciplinary approach to Shakespeare in performance. It is based on these convictions: a) Shakespeare, as an exemplary literary and historical figure, merits intensive study; b) the literary, historical, and philosophical study of Shakespeare’s text informs and enriches the production of his plays; and c) the discipline and experience of performing his plays illuminates the academic study of his work.
