What we do

We cre­ate expe­ri­ences. Peo­ple expe­ri­ence Shake­speare and his world in star­tling new ways with the Fol­ger Shake­speare Library. Pro­fes­sion­al the­ater, exhi­bi­tions, lec­tures, con­certs, fam­i­ly pro­grams, pod­casts, and events engage mil­lions of people—at the Fol­ger, on the road, and online. 

We trans­form edu­ca­tion. The Fol­ger Shake­speare Library is rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing the way Shake­speare is taught in class­rooms, show­ing how the study of his work deep­ens knowl­edge and hones skills across key aca­d­e­m­ic areas. More than two mil­lion teach­ers and stu­dents ben­e­fit each year from in-per­son work­shops, les­son plans, webi­na­rs, online field trips, and the best-sell­ing Fol­ger Edi­tions of Shakespeare’s plays. The Fol­ger is a leader in per­for­mance-based edu­ca­tion, which helps to build deep read­ing skills crit­i­cal to stu­dent suc­cess. 

We dri­ve dis­cov­ery. The Fol­ger Shake­speare Library is an inter­na­tion­al cen­ter for Shake­speare schol­ar­ship and the study of the ear­ly mod­ern peri­od. Each year we wel­come hun­dreds of schol­ars who use our col­lec­tion to advance knowl­edge across dozens of fields. We col­lab­o­rate with oth­er research insti­tu­tions to expand access, fos­ter explo­ration, and share knowl­edge. Through fel­low­ships, sem­i­nars, pub­li­ca­tions, lec­tures, and part­ner­ships, we advance the study of Shake­speare and his world.

Die Fol­ger Library führt mehrere Blogs, darunter „Shake­speare & Beyond“:

[The blog] fea­tures a wide range of Shake­speare-relat­ed top­ics: the ear­ly mod­ern peri­od in which he lived, the ways his plays have been inter­pret­ed and staged over the past four cen­turies, the endur­ing pow­er of his char­ac­ters and lan­guage, and more.

Shake­speare & Beyond also explores the top­ics that shape our expe­ri­ence of Shake­speare today: trends in per­for­mance, the lat­est dis­cov­er­ies and schol­ar­ship, news sto­ries, pop cul­ture, inter­est­ing books, new movies, the rich con­text of the­ater and lit­er­ary his­to­ry, and more. As the word “beyond” sug­gests, from time to time Shake­speare & Beyond also cov­ers top­ics that are not direct­ly linked to Shake­speare, includ­ing the sub­jects of Fol­ger exhi­bi­tions on dif­fer­ent aspects of his world.

Shake­speare & Beyond brings togeth­er orig­i­nal writ­ing, updates, and insights by a vari­ety of con­trib­u­tors, com­ple­ment­ed by great audio, video, and photos—including image gal­leries drawn from the world’s largest Shake­speare col­lec­tion.
