Date: Friday, February 20, 2009
Subject: Some Announcements
Eric and I have been busy, and I urge members to visit the website to
see some of our handiwork.
First, if go from the homepage www.shaksper.net to the Browse SHAKSPER
link http://www.shaksper.net/archives/index.html, you will notice that
the archive volumes for all the past twenty years of SHAKSPER are now
available and operating as is the Current Postings page. The Current
Postings page is where you can conveniently go to read web-based daily
digests from the list. This page is useful should you, for example, have
access to the Internet but not to your e-mail account and you would like
to keep up with the day's postings.
On the Browse SHAKSPER page and the list's homepage, you will also find
the link to the web-based versions of the SHAKSPER Book Reviews with
bios of the Panel members. I should add that the Panel members have been
quite busy behind the scenes, planning the next steps in this new
In the near future, I plan to get back to the SHAKSPER Roundtable page,
for some re-designing and including of the digests in the second
roundtable on "Intentions." I can report that Cary DiPietro has been
diligently working with contributors to the Second Roundtable on our
collaborative venture with the print journal STYLE. STYLE, currently at
Volume 42, is edited by John V. Knapp and housed at the Northern
Illinois University. For further information, visit the STYLE website at
At the SHAKSPER website, you can now find the latest version of my
"Selected Guide to Shakespeare on the Internet":
http://www.shaksper.net/archives/files/internet.sites.html. This version
is the result of my complete revision (to the point of its being
virtually a new paper) of my essay "Shakespeare on the Internet," the
concluding essay in the collection forthcoming second edition of
SH@KESPEARE IN THE MEDIA: FROM THE GLOBE THEATRE TO THE WORLD WIDE WEB,"
edited by Stefani Brusberg-Kiermeier and Jorg Helbig (Britannia.
Frankfurt am Main; New York: Peter Lang). When I learn of its
publication, I will inform interested members.
I have one more announcement, but I shall let that one wait until the
next round of SHAKSPER digests.
