The law is in our lives since the 22nd century BC, when a Sumerian ruler Ur-Nammu created the first law code
which consisted of casuistic statements. Since then, every society happened to create their on laws in order to live in
ordonnance and security, which would bring justice to their lives. For Plato, justice is an asset establishing rational
order, with each part performing its appropriate role and not interfering with the proper functioning of other parts.
Shakespeare scholars regularly encounter social justice issues in the material that we study and teach. Most often in the classroom our engagement with such issues takes the form of thematic identification and critical parsing. Yet we struggle to form more direct, material connections between coursework and social justice work. This book is for professors of early modern literature who want to heighten the intellectual impact of their courses by thoughtfully using their classrooms as laboratories for social formation and action.

The annual Minnesota Writing and English Conference(MNWE) will be held at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota on March 31, 2017-April 1, 2017. The theme of the conference is "Connecting Landscapes." Our age of globalization and virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE's theme, Connecting Landcapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting geographical and metaphorical landscapes. As English educators, we speak of discovering "where we stand" on issues, of being "moved" by words and images, and of using languagae to change others' positions and points of view and create movement.

. . . . we moved together out of the clutch of the Fates, inhabitors of a world without doom; with a scratching, licking and chewing of pens, a whisper and passing of jokes, a titter of tickling, a grumble of labour, a vague stare at the wall in a dream. . . . (Laurie Lee, Cider with Rosie)
