Welcome to the site for the courses associated with the 2014 Shakespeare Abroad program, taught by Dr. Juliette Cunico and Dr. Leslie Donovan for the Honors College at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM, USA.
Based on academic study in two 300-level Honors courses (6 credit hours) and a immersive research through a short-term travel component in England, this program explores Shakespeare’s words and the Renaissance world that fostered them within interdisciplinary and international contexts. Through such academic study at UNM and immersion in Shakespeare’s home culture in England (especially London and Stratford-upon-Avon), we will explore Shakespeare’s works within the historical, performance, and literary traditions of Renaissance society and study the many ways in which his works continue to be relevant cross-culturally. In addition to characterization, language, and themes, we will study the Bard’s works from interdisciplinary perspectives such as fine art, theatre and performance, architecture, political history, music, economics of entertainment, global and collective behavior theory.
This website for the program is designed to provide an easily accessible, electronic space for Honors students to access, collaborate on, and share materials related to the program.
