Free Speaker Event: Edward L. Rocklin, Ph.D.
Edward L. Rocklin received his B.A., magna cum laude, from Harvard College, and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Rutgers University. He began his teaching career in 1972, worked as a tenure-track professor at Pennsylvania State University, Clarion, from 1981 to 1986, and has been teaching at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, since September, 1986. He has published over 20 essays, including works in Shakespeare Quarterly, Shakespeare Survey, Shakespeare Yearbook, Shakespeare Bulletin, The Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism, College English, and California English. He published Performance Approaches to Teaching Shakespeare in 2005 and The Shakespeare Handbooks: Romeo and Juliet in 2010, and is currently working on a new book on teaching the Shakespeare canon, tentatively entitled Reading as an Experimenter: Engaging with Shakespeares Plays.

Improbably produced or unperfectly represented: Exploring Tensions at the End of Measure for Measure.
Slightly over four-hundred years after its first performance, whenever we attend a performance of Measure for Measure we watch a play whose final details we cannot predict, and whose genre we may need to rethink. That is to say, despite the fact that everyone in a first night audience might know the text of this play, no one in that audience can be sure of exactly how the performance will conclude. In this presentation, Professor Edward Rocklin will explore how productions since 1950 have taken advantage of the texts open silences to produce a remarkable array of closing harmonies and disharmonies.
