English faculty members Drs. Marcia McDonald, Joel Overall and Jayme Yeo were recently featured in the New American Colleges & Universities Newsletter for their creation of “Shakespeare in Nashville,” an online archive of local productions of Shakespearean plays. Students in McDonald’s Shakespeare class collect interviews, photos and videos from local performances, while students in Overall’s class use the data to build the website.
The website is hosted by Belmont’s Bunch Library and was made possible by a grant from the Folger Shakespeare Library in conjunction with the National Endowment for the Humanities. See the full article here.
