Controversy in Shakespeare
Faculty Mentor: Julie Campbell, English

Students will present three different examples of how Shakespeare handles controversial issues in his works-- some of which remain controversial to this day. From a general overview on Shakespeare's techniques in avoiding the dangers of writing controversial work (Emily Oldham) to a more focused examination of religious (Ashlee Burton) and gender/sexuality (Travis Moody) controversies in "The Merchant of Venice", this panel seeks to shine a critical light on the Bard's more questionable plays and how he got away with them.
