RSA Member Jonathan Shelley (School of Literature, Media, and Communication, Writing and Communication Program, Georgia Tech) was awarded a 2020–21 Whiting Public Engagement Seed Grant. He is partnering with Common Good Atlanta, an organization that provides access to higher education for incarcerated people and their families, to teach a free college-level Shakespeare course for Atlanta residents who have been released from prison. The course will consist of rigorous analysis of dramatic texts and trips to Atlanta’s Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse to see live performances, and will also engage students as co-collaborators in the creation of open-source lesson plans. When the semester ends, the project team will make these curricular tools available online and encourage their use by colleges, universities, and other educational programs teaching literature and the humanities to currently and formerly incarcerated people.
