Director of Shakespeare Studies: David McCandless
The Shakespeare Studies minor is part of the Theatre program of the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University. The interdisciplinary field of Shakespeare Studies connects the playwright and his works with the culture of Elizabethan and Jacobean England. The Shakespeare Studies minor at SOU emphasizes the performance of Shakespeare’s plays and their cultural impact during the past 400 years. The program is supported by the special resources of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF), the Margery Bailey Renaissance Collection, and the Center for Shakespeare Studies.
