"Shakespeare In His Own Time"

Thursday, October 25, 4:00pm-5:30pm, University of Queensland

A professional development event for Secondary English and Drama Teachers

The event, taking place at UQ's St Lucia campus is intended for secondary teachers of English and Drama and aims to bring together educators in SE Queensland with a particular interest in Shakespeare, and to share knowledge about and approaches to teaching Shakespeare through historical contexts.

The event will consist of two short papers given by Shakespeare specialists Professor Tom Bishop (University of Auckland) and Dr Ross Knecht (UQ Node, Centre for the History of Emotions) followed by a discussion session and drinks. The entire event will be videotaped for future use in a series of podcasts for continuing professional development which will be available through the School of English, Media Studies and Art History.

This is a pilot exercise and we're looking for secondary teachers of English and Drama to come along, share ideas about the topic and offer some feedback on the event as a possible model for improving professional engagement between secondary and tertiary level teachers of English and Literature.

Numbers will be limited to ensure the event remains informal and interactive so please RSVP via email to Penny Boys by Friday, October 19: p.boys@uq.edu.au
