About the Course
Shakespeare and Science will explore the works of Shakespeare in the context of the rise of the Enlightenment. The Enlightenment, also known as the Age of Reason, was an intellectual and cultural movement in the eighteenth century that emphasized reason over superstition and science over blind faith. We will read aloud the works of Shakespeare while exploring how culture and literature impacted the science and politics of this pivotal time in history.
