The Problem of an Intellectual History for Shakespeare's Age
Directed by Leeds Barroll
This NEH Summer Institute for College and University Faculty was a group revaluation of development, stasis, and change in the relation of intellectual theory to practice in England from 1480 to 1642, as participants identified Renaissance philosophical, political, economic, and scientific theories and inferred ideology from English practice in commerce, politics, and literature.
