Cooking in the Archives is a public humanities project that curates transcribed and updated recipes from early modern English household manuscripts for an audience including food historians, students researching early modern culture, and culinary enthusiasts.

Digital Cavendish Project – A Collaborative Scholarly Repository

Shawn Moore (Florida South Western State College)

The Digital Cavendish Project is a collaborative scholarly repository that supports digital research, image archives, scholarly projects, and teaching resources that focus on any aspect of the life and writings of Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle (1623-1673). The project also supports the creation of digital reading and scholarly editions of her work.

Digital Tools for Teaching Shakespeare: Offerings from the Folger Shakespeare Library

Eric Johnson (Folger Shakespeare Library)
Meaghan J. Brown (Folger Shakespeare Library)
Rebecca Niles (Folger Shakespeare Library)
Justine Decamillis (University of Maryland)

The Folger Shakespeare Library offers a suite of digital opportunities for students and instructors to explore Shakespeare’s life and works and the world that shaped them. Our digital exhibit would show off a selection of these tools, including DIY-First Folio, DIY-Quarto, and the Miranda platform, and the ways such tools can facilitate lessons and independent exploration.

The EMC Imprint from UCSB

Andrew Griffin (University of California, Santa Barbara)
Patricia Fumerton (University of California, Santa Barbara)

The EMC Imprint is a digital press that fully exploits the affordances of multimedia to re-imagine humanistic scholarship. Our first publication, “The Making of a Broadside Ballad,” has proven the concept, and we’ll have two new publications, one edited by Patricia Fumerton and the other by David J. Baker, to demonstrate by the time of SAA 2019.  Forthcoming from the press are digital projects on color in sixteenth-century Flemish art by Sven Dupré (Utrect), and on theatre architecture and archaeology by Roger Clegg (DeMontfort).

The Hurly Burly Shakespeare Show!

Jess Hamlet (University of Alabama)
Aubrey Whitlock (American Shakespeare Center)

The Hurly Burly Shakespeare Show! is a weekly podcast of equal parts irreverent entertainment and scholarly discussion aimed at Shakespeare novices and hard-core “Bardolaters” alike. Our goal is to become a valuable resource for novices, artists, academics, and educators, and continue the dialogue at the intersection of Shakespeare, modern theatre, and modern academia.

Jonson Character Cloud

Dori Coblentz (Georgia Institute of Technology)
David Coblentz

Bartholomew Fair is a timely play due to its commentary on class, censorship, and embodiment. Yet, the play is seldom taught or performed, in part because few resources exist to aid in navigating the complex networks of plot and character. To address this need, we offer an interactive character map, wordcount charts, and scene-by-scene summary with discussion questions.

Mapping Absence in Shakespeare

John Garrison (Grinnell College)
Ahon Gooptu (Grinnell College)

This project utilizes digital mapping software in order to encourage students and scholars to explore the “present absent” in Shakespeare’s work. By those elements that exert force on the action and characters but are physically absent, this interactive tool challenges notions of what can be “mapped” and what counts as “present.”

The MIT Merchant Module

Diana E. Henderson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
Mary Erica Zimmer (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

The MIT Merchant Module presents an immersive research environment that moves from introducing Shakespeare and his language, through close reading across media, to culminating opportunities for performance, reflection, and insight. Original footage and interviews reveal its site-specific orientation while encouraging broader questions about Shakespeare in our time.

To Quote or Not to Quote, or Fractal Shakespeare

Derek Miller (Harvard University)

Using new visualizations of Shakespeare’s plays as a function of their popularity in scholarly citations, I explore the Shakespeare we do not cite. This project demonstrates literary scholarship’s tendency to study a small subset of authors, works, and passages within a work, and to ignore almost entirely the vast bulk of words, works, and writers.

Shakespeare at Play

Noam Tzvi Lior ( University of Toronto)

Shakespeare at Play is an app intended to help students and teachers encountering Shakespeare in the classroom, by supplementing or replacing the classroom text. The app includes full text and video performances of four Shakespeare plays, as well as notes and commentary. Users can navigate their own path from text to performance to paratexts and back, at their own pace.
