College Collaboration Brings Deeper Insight To First Folio
The First Folio tour will make its way to Texas A&M University from March 8 – April 3 in the J. Wayne Stark Galleries in the Memorial Student Center. Through the exhibit, The Folger Shakespeare Library, in partnership with Cincinnati Museum Center and the American Library Association, are seeking to give parents and students an interactive look into the mind of William Shakespeare by introducing his first collection of works.
The exhibit will feature literary workshops and showcase original manuscripts of some of Shakespeare’s most famous work, including Hamlet’s “to be or not to be.”
“It’s a unique opportunity for the students and the university,” said Dr. Larry Kelly, clinical professor of Teaching, Learning, and Culture. “Something like this really brings history to life.”
Texas A&M will be the exclusive Texas stop during the First Folio tour. In addition to the First Folio, the Within the Book and Volume: Early Modern English Literature at Texas A&M exhibit will take place at Cushing Memorial Library & Archives in February.
The collaboration between the College of Education and Human Development and the College of Liberal Arts will give students in the Post-Baccalaureate Program another literary look into the exhibit.
“Shakespeare’s work is very significant. His themes are real and still resonate today,” said Dr. Kelly. “We are putting this out for the English students because they’ll be out there teaching Shakespeare to their own students.”
The exhibit will showcase materials from the same time period as the First Folio and focus on the intellectual developments and the physical process behind bookmaking in the 16th and 17th centuries.
