First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare is a national travelling exhibition organized by the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

The exhibition is produced in association with the American Library Association and Cincinnati Museum Center and is funded in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor and the generous support of Google.org, Lord Browne of Madingley, Vinton and Sigrid Cerf, the British Council, Stuart and Mimi Rose, Albert and Shirley Small and other generous donors.

First Folio, which was assembled in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare’s death, includes 36 of his plays—18 of which had never before been published. Without it, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, As You Like It, The Tempest and more could have been lost. The book will travel to all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. The exhibition, which also includes panels and digital content, exclusively features First Folios from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., whose collection of 82 First Folios is the largest in the world.

Folger Shakespeare Library selected Drew as the sole exhibitor in New Jersey because of its renowned theatre program, wealth of Shakespeare courses and nexus with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, which is based on Drew’s 186-acre campus. The book will arrive in late September and be displayed from Oct. 6 through Oct. 30 on the first floor of Mead Hall, with a bevvy of daily programming around it.

First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare appears courtesy of the Folger Shakespeare Library. Books in the Time of Shakespeare is supported in part by the Delmas Foundation.

Exhibit Hours: Tuesday to Friday 4-8 p.m. and weekends 12-8 p.m.

Group Tours: For information on tours for groups up to 60, such as from schools, contact hryan@drew.edu or 973-408-3702.

Cathy N. Davidson on The Future of Learning

September 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

| $32*

Buy Tickets.

The world has changed drastically since the 19th century when modern higher education was invented for the era of the telegraph and the Model T. How can higher education reinvent itself, now, to prepare students for the complicated world they have inherited? In this talk, Cathy N. Davidson, renowned educator and scholar of technology and cognition, challenges us all to invent the future of learning together. She looks back at the history of higher education and the beginning of academic professionalization, analyzes how the digital age has altered the mission and function of higher education, and then ends with practical suggestions for ways professors can transform the classroom experience for maximum participation, creativity and engagement.

Davidson asks what if the classroom were structured as a training ground for life beyond school? What if the classroom were structured for asking tough questions and for addressing problems without answers? What if classrooms were structured for navigating technology and new publics? And, most important, what if the classroom were structured for workforce readiness and for world readiness? In The Future of Learning, Davidson challenges faculty, students, staff and community members to think together about these crucial questions for the future of our society.

Cathy N. Davidson is a leading innovator in the areas of institutional change, professional development and personal health, success and performance in the digital age. A distinguished scholar of the history of technology, she is the author of 20 books on technology, education, and cognitive neuroscience. Her appearance at Drew is generously supported by the endowment for the Merrill Maguire Skaggs Lecture and is presented as part of the Drew Forum speaker series.
