We will take the train from Grand Central Terminal to Cold Spring, N.Y. On arrival, we'll lace up our walking shoes and trek up one of the nearby mountains that overlook the Hudson River. Don't forget your camera to capture the view! After making our way back down, we'll head to a local historic pub for dinner.
In this presentation, Barbara Hodgdon takes Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew to explore how clothes "act out" in support of historical and cultural meanings. Placing Shrew's written language of clothes against Elizabethan social customs, she investigates how theatre's fabrications have invited spectators to look at Kate's (the Shrew's) "speaking body" in performance, and how Kate's clothes play with the most serious theme of human, and theatrical, consciousness – Who am I?

Thanks to the generous support of the Montreal and Quebec Bar Associations, the Bar Prize Moot has become an annual end-of-year tradition at the Faculty of Law. Four of this year's top oralists will plead an appeal before the Honourable Madam Justice Bich of the Court of Appeal, the Honourable Mr. Justice Silcoff of the Superior Court, and the Honourable Mr. Justice Cameron of the Court of Quebec. The mooters will debate the problem from last year's Mignault Competition. They will discuss the legal implications for parents or tutors who use their child's inheritance money without judicial authorization. The same case will form the subject matter of the competitive moot run-offs to be held on April 7 and 8, and therefore all candidates for a position on one of next year's moot teams are strongly encouraged to attend.
