Sheila Cavanagh's Director's Seminar

Sheila T Cavanagh offered an overview of several international projects designed to bring Shakespeare to incarcerated populations in several continents. Drawing from the recent University of Notre Dame (US) conference on the subject and from the World Shakespeare Project’s collaboration with Monroe Correctional Facility and Documentary maker Steve Rowland in Washington State, Cavanagh described the range of programs using Shakespeare and discussed the ramifications of such efforts for the prisoners and for the broader academic community.
