Beth Charlebois’s SMPs


I have a special interest in mentoring projects focused on Shakespeare, English Renaissance literature and drama, and Shakespeare on stage and screen. I also welcome projects dealing with drama, from ancient to modern. I tend to mentor projects that involve primary and secondary research and focus on the close reading of texts in their historical contexts. On occasion I mentor creatively-oriented projects, although I ask students to devote a substantial portion of their SMPs to situating their creative work within its literary and historical tradition, giving the creative projects I mentor a critical bent. Students interested in working with me should set up a meeting with me prior to the first semester of their senior year, and will be asked to write a short proposal.
