Students Present Work at Alma College

Undergraduate English students Grace Brockway, Cody Mejeur, and Ben Moran will travel to Alma College on April 24th to present their work at Alma's annual Renaissance literature conference, a forum which allows for the sharing of ideas among Michigan students interested in the early modern period. The Western group's papers, respectively, concern the changes Shakespeare wrought in the Romeo and Juliet story when he adapted it from an earlier sixteenth-century narrative poem; the influence of Calvinist theology on some of Shakespeare's later plays; and the relationship between Shakespeare's The Tempest and the Genesis creation story.
