Shakespeare’s Language: Revealing Meanings and Exploring Myths
A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Shakespeare:
“Shakespeare’s Language: Revealing Meanings and Exploring Myths”
This MOOC, run by FutureLearn, will appeal to anybody with an interest in Shakespeare’s language, early modern English and/or corpus-methods for tackling literary and/or historical texts.
The course is free to join and begins on 12th July (though you may enrol after this date). It runs for four weeks (it amounts to about three hours per week). Further details, information about registration, etc. can be found here: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/shakespeares-language/1 In terms of level, the materials are pitched at first year university undergraduates. However, no background knowledge is assumed; senior sixth formers/high school students should find it accessible. Extending the other way, it is sprinkled with research findings, not to mention innovative techniques, so should also be of interest to more senior scholars.
