‘Is not…learning..the spice and salt that season a man?’

Hello there! This is Jacquelyn speaking, the Learning and Participation intern (or Education intern, which is slightly less correct but also less wordy) for summer 2018. Because I’m the first intern in this position since Courtney left last year, I think a review of the department is in order. Like most departments at the Shakespeare … Continue reading ‘Is not…learning..the spice and salt that season a man?’

The course of [an internship] never did run smooth . . .

Lend me your ears for an intern intro

Hello there! My name is Jacquelyn Dunn and I am the Learning and Education Intern for summer 2018. Like my fellow interns, I’ve been charged with the task of writing an intro about myself—which should be fun, right? Wrong. Because writing your own bio requires more self-reflection and personal awareness than is comfortable to engage … Continue reading Lend me your ears for an intern intro

This weekend we had the great honor and pleasure of attending the 454th birthday celebration for Mr. William Shakespeare. My entire internship experience has led up to this … Continue reading The Birthday Celebrations: Putting the “Shake” in Shakespeare

Time goes on crutches till the next Shakespeare Week

Imagine a world without Shakespeare. No more awkward, love-struck tweens singing along to Taylor Swift's "Love Story". Phrases like “All’s well that ends well,” “Dead as a doornail,” and even Sherlock’s “the game is afoot” would be lost. We wouldn't have rousing monologues like “to be or not to be” or the Saint Crispin’s Day … Continue reading Time goes on crutches till the next Shakespeare Week

“This Our Life, Exempt from Public Haunt”: Life as a Digital Intern

One thing I wish I had known more about before starting this internship were the ins-and-outs of the projects that Digital Interns get up to - aka, I wanted to know less about “fancy official sounding terms fit for a CV” and more of “what will I actually be spending each of my days doing?” … Continue reading “This Our Life, Exempt from Public Haunt”: Life as a Digital Intern
