Comment: Re: SHK 4.0472 Re: Computers and Shakespeare Studies
With my research associate Eric Johnson I'm developing a hypermedia CD-Rom on
the subject of Shakespeare Across Cultures that includes video extracts from
productions, interviews with scholars and theatre artists, promptbooks, and
of course text (the Folio, foreign languages, and literal translations).
I'd like to know if anyone has materials that I might use, either as archival,
"research only viewing" for a book, or as "non-theatrical" fair-use for an NEH
funded exhibition we're putting together for major public libraries and per-
forming arts spaces.
I just returned with material from the ROC, PRC, South Korea, and Japan. Any-
one with information on Africa, India, or Latin America--or just interested in
the subject and project--please get in touch.
