Honors 210 C: Worldwide Appropriations of
Shakespeare in the 19th and 20th Centuries
professor: Sharmila Mukherjee
Professor Mukherjee is clearly an expert in all matters Shakespeare. She is well-versed in all of his plays, and chooses both famous and lesser known works (if such things exist) for the class to analyze in detail. It was fascinating to see so many renditions of Shakespeare in such different cultural contexts. I especially enjoyed the final project, which we were all encouraged to interpret creatively. My group chose to create a humorous Shakespeare version of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure". I had a great time with my group members, and have a much deeper appreciation of Shakespeare's great works after this course.
