Shakespeare and Time a Success

Shakespeare and Time, the 15th Annual Undergraduate Shakespeare Conference, was on Saturday, April 2.  Neag Visiting Professor Garrett Sullivan delivered the plenary talk, “‘How Britain Fights’: Shakespeare and World War II Propaganda,” which was covered by The Daily Campus. Sullivan’s talk was lively and extremely well attended. Sixteen outstanding papers from students representing nine different schools, four from UConn, were also presented. The four Shakespeareans on the two judging committees had a difficult time making their two award picks. UConn helped raise the bar for next year’s event at UMass-Boston. The final event featured Lindsay Cummings and two student actors from CRT, who performed a medley of comedy and tragedy scenes and spoke about translating text/poetry into stage action.
