The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 14.2241 Thursday, 27 November 2003

Subject: Announcement of Hyperhamlet
An invitation to Hyperhamlet
"Hyperhamlet" is a new project at the University of Basel, a database
that collects and orders references to Hamlet in all areas of culture.
Who quoted Hamlet? Which passages were most popular when? Etc. It is
based on the conviction that we need a cultural history of Shakespeare's
plays, and that in studying the status and the meaning of a play we
should not entirely rely on criticism and performance history.
The project has just begun. It is open. And everybody is invited to
contribute. Interested? Then go to
