The Shakespeare Center
at the Institute

 

London

Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s miniature portrait of William Shakespeare,
watercolor and gouache, circa 1865. Based on the Droeshout Portrait.

 

The Institute is proud to announce the formation of a new

Shakespeare Center

 at the Institute.

The Center will present a series of lectures by

Professor Arlene Okerlund, Ph.D.

who will discuss William Shakespeare’s contributions
to our understanding of the human experience.

The lectures will be broadcast live, one per month
and will ultimately be packaged as DVD sets for all
high school English departments in the Santa Clara Valley.

The Shakespeare Center will also
contribute to a permanent endowment,
“The Arlene Naylor Okerlund
Professorship for Shakespeare Studies,”
which supports the teaching and scholarly study
of Shakespeare at San José State University.

When fully endowed, the fund will pay the
salary of a resident professor who will teach both the
textual and performance aspects of Shakespeare’s drama.

 

Ten of this year’s twelve lectures will focus on specific plays and two on the biography and artistic techniques of Shakespeare.

All lectures are on SATURDAY nights at 7PM
