Miscellaneous Information

Miscellaneous Information:

Linda Tolman, who has been teaching at Lakeland since 1969, has a Ph.D. in English from Marquette University and a master's in comparative literature from Occidental College in Los Angeles. She graduated with her bachelor's of arts degree in comparative literature and international relations from Beloit College.

Her areas of expertise include the literature of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. She also regularly teaches “Why the Greeks Matter” and takes students to Greece to study ancient Greek art and literature.

Tolman has been awarded three National Endowment for the Humanities grants for study at Princeton University, the University of Iowa and Dartmouth College in the areas of Shakespearean drama and the Homeric epics. She was also awarded grants to study at the Folger Shakespeare library and the Center for Hellenic Studies, both in Washington, D.C., in the areas of English Renaissance drama and Homer's Iliad.

A strong believer in exposing her students to out-of-the-classroom learning opportunities, in addition to the Greece trips, Tolman has guided more than two dozen trips to Chicago's Goodwin Theater and the Guthrie in Minneapolis. She has also led nine theater study tours to London and Stratford.
