Timothy Billings: Mellon Funding for Inter-institutional Faculty Career Enhancement Initiative

Timothy Billings (English & American Literatures), together with co-organizers at Scripps and Vassar, has received funding through the Mellon Foundation’s Faculty Career Enhancement grant for an inter-institutional initiative titled 21st Century Shakespeare. This project provides funding for a group of Literature and Theatre faculty from Scripps, Vassar, DePauw, Denison, Furman, Harvey Mudd, Rhodes, and Middlebury (including also James Berg, Dan Brayton, and Marion Wells) to attend the five-play tour of the Royal Shakespeare Company in New York City this summer, and then to collaborate in a pedagogy workshop at Scripps in the spring centered around new approaches to Shakespeare.
