Subject:     Web Site Update with Request

Dear SHAKSPEReans,

I am currently working on the Pedagogy Section of the newly designed web site: http://shaksper.net/scholarly-resources/pedagogy-teaching-resources

I have outlined all that I would like to initially include, and I will announce when I have complete what I have outlined.

After Pedagogy I will be turning to the Shakespeare on the Internet area: http://shaksper.net/scholarly-resources/shakespeare-on-the-internet

This page includes my “Selected Guide to Shakespeare on the Internet” (18 February 2009 Revision).

I would appreciate any reports of dead links or any suggestions for sites that are not presently included in the list. But because this is a “selected” list does not mean that I will automatically include all suggestions. I, for example, am particularly choosy about BLOGs. As I explain in the accompanying essay from which the list is derived ("Shakespeare on the Internet"):

“ . . . blogs remain highly personal, expressing the feelings and thoughts of their authors. The blogs that I have mentioned usually offer content that rises above escribitionism. However, I have come across many other blogs that have titles suggesting Shakespearean or Early Modern subjects, but I have not included them here since I did not think they significantly rose above the personal diary format.”

If you have not read this essay, you might wish to take a look at it. This essay and its predecessor are the source of the list of suggested Internet sites. It is a complete revision of the one published in Sh@kespeare in the Media: From the Globe Theatre to the World Wide Web. [Eds. Stefani Brusberg-Kiermeier and Jörg Helbig. Berlin; Bern; Bruxelles; New York; Oxford; Wien: Peter Lang, 2004. 213-241.] I prepared for a second edition of the collection, which never materialized.

An example of a site that I plan to include is Alan Young’s Ophelia and Web 2.0, "The Death of Shakespeare's Ophelia, Popular Culture, and Web 2.0”:


Alan is another long-time subscriber to SHAKSPER and I find his site particularly useful.
