Surveying Shakespeare: Law and Power

Surveying Shakespeare: Law and Power focuses on significant issues of England's legal history as they appear in Shakespeare’s works. From Salic Law to censorship and propaganda, these exhibits complicate our contemporary view of Renaissance culture.

Surveying Shakespeare, with support from the Department of English and the Department of Special Collections and Archives at the University of Colorado Boulder, is a series of exhibits that represent the work of nine undergraduate students enrolled in “Shakespeare for Non-Majors” during the fall 2015 semester. Committed to historical and literary storytelling, this series demonstrates these students respect for the past and the archives and historians that protect it.
