Laurie Osborne teaches Shakespeare, film theory, literary theory, and, with particular glee and wild abandon, composition. After completing her book, The Trick of Singularity: Twelfth Night and Performance Editions, Osborne vowed never to publish again. Or at least not on Twelfth Night. She has been unable to keep that promise and has an essay forthcoming in 2008 on amity in Twelfth Night. Her most recent scholarship could be loosely linked under "Shakespeare and Popular Culture." Romance novels, young adult fiction, and, yes, a LOT of Shakespeare on film are all victims of her pen. She has developed a website devoted to one of these unlikely topics entitled Romancing the Bard, and she actually has a page facebook. Her favorite color is teal, her favorite song is Brahms' 2nd piano concerto, her favorite junk book is The Grand Sophy, and her most treasured achievement is the first CWB Colby Senior Teaching Award given to a female professor.
