Work by Ray Schultz, professor of theatre arts, and Jess Larson, professor of studio art, will be published in Performance on Behalf of the Environment, edited by Richard D. Besel and Jnan A. Blau. This collection, due to be published in December by Lexington Books, addresses theatrical ways of dialoguing with environmental concerns through performance and/or performance practices. The chapter by Schultz and Larson, entitled "Staging Sustainable Shakespeare: 'Greening' the Bard While Advancing Institutional Mission," is a case study of Morris's 2010 production of As You Like It and, in part, demonstrates how the arts can be used to advance Morris's sustainability initiatives.
