The Department of English is pleased to announce that Lynne Magnusson
has been invited by the Folger Institute and its consortium to deliver the Shakespeare Birthday Lecture in April 2015 and to direct a Folger Symposium in 2015 on Shakespeare's language! Both of these are very prestigious honours.
The Birthday Lecture event has been a key tradition there since 1932, and the only other Canadian to be invited was (then our own) Patricia Parker in 1987. This is wonderful news, and a fitting recognition of Lynne's important scholarly contributions in this area.
