March 21, 2003. The Midnight's Children Multimedia Study Environment (MSE) has been released to the Columbia University community. The Midnight's Children MSE provides students the opportunity to gain a richer understanding of Salman Rushdie's acclaimed novel, the play derived from it, and the historical and cultural context in which the story is set. The MSE provides a wealth of related content including reflections from Rushdie, Columbia faculty, and members of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The release has been anticipated by 11 courses that are using the MSE this spring semester. This first release also coincides with the ongoing Midnight's Children Humanities Festival and the performances at the Apollo Theatre.

Faculty interested in using the MSE for their courses should contact Cynthia Lawson, the MSE project manager, at clawson@ccnmtl.columbia.edu.
