'Shakespeare’s First Folio Unlearned'

Adam Zucker is an Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the UMass Department of English. He is currently editing Love’s Labor’s Lost for the fourth Arden Series. His workshop will introduce participants to a few of the textual mysteries and editorial riddles contained in the First Folio. With bound fragments to work with and make sense of on our own, we will see what happens when we unlearn the Shakespearean text by attending to unintelligible or incomprehensible language written into early printings of plays.
