Subject: The SHAKSPER Website
As I sadly face the approaching end of my year-long sabbatical, I have
been examining the content on the SHAKSPER website
(http://www.shaksper.net/) and updating some of it. While doing so, I
thought that I would take a moment to call to your attention some of
what that can be found there.
The "General information about the SHAKSPER mailing list" page
identifies the sixty countries from which SHAKSPER draws its members.
The homepage provides a place to begin surfing the web for Shakespeare
related sites: "A Selected Guide to Shakespeare on the Internet"
(http://www.shaksper.net/archives/files/internet.sites.html). I shall be
updating this guide in the next few weeks, checking for among other
things "dead" or non-functioning links.
Eric Luhrs, SHAKSPER webmaster (http://www.shaksper.net/tech.html), has
provided a page with directions on "How to cite SHAKSPER"
From the website, you can view scholarly papers provided by members
(http://www.shaksper.net/archives/files/index.html), papers from members
seeking comments (http://www.shaksper.net/review-papers/index.html) on
their work, and reference files
Perhaps the most useful and most accessed pages are those associated
with the SHAKSPER archives: listings of the current postings
(http://www.shaksper.net/archives/index.html), and searching
(http://www.shaksper.net/search.html). These pages are the principal
reason that the SHAKSPER website receives approximately 10,000 hits per
Finally, I have updated the information about myself
(http://www.shaksper.net/editor.html), which I would encourage you to
share with anyone who might be interested.
