One of the co-directors of this year’s “Global Shakespeare Student Festival,” Katherine Rowe, has been blogging about the Festival as it unfolds. Rowe is Chair and Professor of English at Bryn Mawr College, and together with her colleague Catharine Slusar, she is the leader of a troupe of student actors attending the Festival from the Tri-College Consortium (Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore).
She is the author of Dead Hands: Fictions of Agency, Renaissance to Modern (Stanford University Press, 19990 and New Wave Shakespeare on Screen (with Thomas Cartelli; Polity Press, 2007). She has served on the editorial board of Shakespeare Quarterly and currently inflects her study of Shakespearean theater with work in the areas of digital humanities and media change. You can get a sense of what that means by reading her article “Crowd-Sourcing Shakespeare: Screen Work and Screen Play in Second Life®,” which is available online here.
