A Symposium to Honor Professor Ralph Williams
on the Occasion of His Retirement
This symposium honored Ralph Williams, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of English Language and Literature, as he ended a career spanning some five decades at the University of Michigan. Over that time, having taught thousands upon thousands of students (in some years close to a thousand alone) in large lecture courses on Shakespeare, on the Bible, and on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, he has become one of the more famed, more sought after, and most beloved professors on this campus. He has over his time here done as well stupendous service outside the classroom. One might note—observing just the recent past—his crucial role in maintaining our continuing relationship with the Royal Shakespeare Company as well as his serving as an important ambassador to off-campus communities of alumni and other well-wishers to this university, not just here in Michigan but across the United States.
This project involved the creation of all promotional materials for the symposium including an event website, poster, flyers, invite and symposium program.
