The third part of the What Acting IS feature is now live on the Folger’s Collation blog! This post explores the idea of mentality in actor-centered criticism and is where you’ll find most of my contributions (in regard to signifiers of madness in early modern drama and culture). You can read it here.
Last semester I had the opportunity to participate in a seminar at the Folger Shakespeare Library which explored the tensions and collaborations between academic and practical approaches to dramatic texts. At the end of our sessions, the members of the seminar co-authored a series of blog posts, the first of which has been posted to the Folger’s Research & Exploration blog, The Collation. If you have any interest in Shakespeare, theatre, or actor-centered criticism, I hope you’ll take a minute to read it here.
