Teaching the Humanities
Recorded October 3, 2007
Studying Shakespeare and the Bible are two mainstays of the Dartmouth curriculum. While the general topic has remained the same, the teaching has evolved and the students now relish discussion and excel at multi-tasking, according to this podcast with two veteran faculty members: Susan Ackerman '80, the Preston H. Kelsey Professor of Religion and a Professor of Women's and Gender Studies, and Peter Saccio, the Leon Black Professor of Shakespearean Studies and Professor of English Emeritus.
