MARLBORO, VT -- The final in a series of Faculty Forums
at Marlboro College this semester will feature English literature
faculty member J. Birjepatil, who will present "Re-Reading
and Re-Presenting Shakespeare" at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 19.
The discussion will focus on a critique of post-Structuralist approaches to Shakespeare's texts and a critical evaluation of some recent productions of Shakespeare's plays.
Born in India and educated in England, Birjepatil first came to the United States as a post-doctoral Fellow at Yale. Subsequently, he served for two years at Brown University as a visiting professor of comparative literature and theater arts. His academic credits also include a teaching assignment at the University of Baroda and a research fellowship at the University of Manchester in England, where he earned his M.A. and Ph.D. and trained in theater, winning a Gold Medal Certificate from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Birjepatil has produced poems and scholarly works in Indian, British, and American journals.
The Faculty Forum series has been organized as a new opportunity for faculty members to share aspects of their work outside of the classroom with each other and interested students, staff, and community members.
All of the forums, which are free and open to the public, will take place in the Apple Tree building, which is fully accessible. For more information, please call (802) 257-4333. The Marlboro College events calendar can be accessed on-line at http://www.marlboro.edu/calendar/calendar.html.
