Be Inspired: Shakespeare and Me
Dr. Claudia Ferradas: Educator of teachers of English in Argentina and former Academic Secretary at the Instituto de Enseñanza Superior en Lenguas Vivas, Buenos Aires
'Shakespeare has been an inspiration for my students and myself to build bridges across cultures, to bring the beauty of language into our classes like a mantra, to marvel at the versatility of performance, to focus on issues that concern us all. When I invited students and colleagues to commemorate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, the response was so overwhelming that we ended up running a festival that spread over the whole year. With the passionate contribution of actors, scholars, and translators, the “Celebrating Shakespeare” festival brought us all together.'
