The Evolution of the Digital Arden Shakespeare

The Arden Shakespeare has had several digital incarnations since 1996, when I was heavily involved with the creation of the first, the Arden Shakespeare CD-ROM. Each has been innovative in its own way, often engaging with interesting challenges in the context of rapidly changing technology.

Yesterday John Lavagnino (KCL) and I took part in the London Shakespeare Seminar at the School of Advanced Studies at the University of London, talking about digital Shakespeares. Both of us took the opportunity to look back at what has happened over the last couple of decades to better understand the challenges and constraints in developing digital Shakespeare resources. I’m writing up the talk in a more extended form, so hope to make that available at some point in the future, but for the moment here are the slides, though Slideshare seems to have done something with the formatting of the timelines.
