As Emory prepares for the November arrival of Shakespeare’s First Folio from the Folger Library, the Emory Libraries will exhibit “A Goodly Commodity: Shakespeare in Pop Culture,” which explores pop culture’s fascination with the Bard through artifacts from the collections of Emory English professors Harry Rusche (emeritus) and Sheila Cavanagh. From costumed Wishbone and Barbie dolls, to Shakespeare insult cards, to a Bard twist on the Star Wars trilogy, the reach of Shakespeare’s influence continues into modern times. On display June 29, 2016 – Feb. 26, 2017. Photos by Paige Knight, Emory Libraries.
