The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 21.0232 Thursday, 10 June 2010
From: Jeremy Fiebig <
The Shakespeare Standard (http://theshakespearestandard.com) introduces several new features, including
The Shakespeare Wave: The Shakespeare Standard is host to the first (known) Shakespeare-centered Wave (http://theshakespearestandard.com/wave/). Google Wave (http://wave.google.com/about.html) is a real-time communication/document application that has been used to host electronic conferences, academic course work, and other real-time events. The Wave can be used to share documents, host discussions, conduct informal polls, share photos and videos, and a variety of other extensions. A Google account with Wave is required. This really is a phenomenal tool and worth a few minutes of your time. Incidentally, we're also interested in adding other related waves, so please feel free to suggest your own.
The Production Hub and Event Calendar (http://theshakespearestandard/production-hub/): The Shakespeare Standard hosts an online event calendar for all manner of Shakespeare-related events, including conferences, productions, lectures, etc. Users can schedule events themselves; events are broadcast site-wide so that all readers will encounter the events regardless of the page they're on.
