Workshop description: 

The age of global Shakespeares and digital video archive is upon us, and online 
video research tools have become indispensable when we research and teach 
worldwide performances of Shakespeare. It is an age when Shakespeare and world 
cultures foster symbiotic and antithetical relationships with equal force. This 
workshop serves two purposes: 

(1) To introduce participants to the resources, research tools and new 
pedagogical possibilities afforded by the MIT Global Shakespeares digital 
performance archive and research space located at 
http://globalshakespeares.org/   The project provides global, regional, and 
national portals to Shakespeare productions within a federated archive. There 
are portals to Shakespeare performances in the UK and North America, the Arab 
World, India, Asia, and Brazil, containing full videos and video highlights. 

and 

(2) To work with practitioners, users of digital archives, and any one curious 
about new pedagogical possibilities; to brainstorm about the practical and 
theoretical implications of a broad range of digital Shakespeare projects 
including video and textual archives. What can one do with these digital tools 
that has not been possible until now? Are there any limitations or drawbacks? 
What critical resources might we bring to thinking about the place of the 
archive in Shakespeare studies today? 

Participants without any experience with digital archives are welcome!
