This experiential seminar will allow students to read, perform, and debate Shakespeare’s relevant lessons for 21st century leadership in two unique settings. In two pre-departure meetings we will read and discuss sections of The Tragedy of Macbeth, asking why Lincoln read aloud passages from the play to his cabinet during the Civil War. Our residential May seminar will begin with a two and a half day faculty-student retreat to Sedona’s red rock country to read and reflect on Shakespeare’s more positive study of leadership and statesmanship, The Life of Henry V. Mornings and evenings will involve formal sessions discussing both primary and secondary readings, with afternoons reserved for classic hikes and conversation. On returning to ASU, students will be coached for two days in a leadership lab by nationally acclaimed Ken and Carol Adelman of “Movers and Shakespeares.” Dr. Carol Adelman is a policy fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington D.C., and Dr. Ken Adelman served as deputy ambassador to the U.N. in the Reagan administration. Finally, Henry V and the workshop serve as our profile in leadership as each student will write a 10-page final expository paper applying Shakespeare to his/her own ‘character’ as an emerging leader (due May 13).
