Before you see the production of Measure for Measure on campus next week and discover Shakespeare’s exploration of the exploitation of power—come join us in a discussion of what this play might reveal in an investigation of our political climate. 

The discussion will be led by Dr. Bryan Hampton, Dorothy and James D. Kennedy Distinguished Teaching Professor and Associate Department Head of English, who will provide a summary of the play and help us unpack its meaning, and Dr. Michelle D. Deardorff, Adolph S. Ochs Professor of Government and Department Head of Political Science and Public Service, who will explore the implications of this play to our contemporary American political climate. We hope a lively discourse will follow. This is open to the university and the Chattanooga communities.
