Welcome to the Stratford to QC blog. Why the weird name? Well, I am a grad student at Arizona State University in English Literature focusing on English Renaissance literature, particularly Shakespeare. One of the things I have always loved about Shakespeare is he was an uneducated small-town guy who made it in the city and beat all of the wealthier and better-educated at their own game.
I, too, am from a small town, Queen Creek, AZ (the QC), and its always been my goal to bridge the cultural gap between the world I live in now (academe) and the world I came from, because they are both essential parts of who I am. I will probably go more into this as the blog continues, so we'll leave it here for now and I will be back soon.
