Digital Shakespeare: Voice of Humanities ConferenceMarch 21, 2012
Michael Goodman, a PhD student at Cardiff University, will be presenting a paper tomorrow at the Voice of Humanities Conference:
Victorian Illustrated Shakespeare
in the age of Digitisation and Hypertext
This presentation will explore how modern technology allows us to create exciting scholarly resources that enable academics, students and the wider public to engage dynamically with historical texts.
It will explain my research into Victorian illustrated Shakespeare and how I am currently curating and creating an open access database of Shakespeare illustrations from this era. It will go on to analyse the complex problems and philosophical implications inherent in such a project and, ultimately, how digital humanities can play a vital role in educational practices.
