Posted by Tim on February 16, 2017 in Academics, Workshops

Opening the Digital Anthology of Early Modern English Drama: Skills, Tools, and Texts

Undergraduate workshop, June 26 – 30, 2017

We invite applications from rising juniors and seniors for an undergraduate workshop hosted by the Digital Anthology of Early Modern English Drama. Students will have the chance to acquire digital humanities experience, research perspectives, and editorial skills while engaging with the drama of Shakespeare’s contemporaries. Participants will craft their own projects in small teams under the guidance and mentorship of visiting faculty. They will explore early modern play texts from a variety of angles, which may include, but are not limited to:

Performance: Staging early modern drama

Book history: Playing companies, playwrights, and publishers

Corpus analysis: Genres, topics, and computational approaches

Linguistics: stylometrics and word histories

Editing early modern plays: preparing a scholarly edition

Experience with digital humanities tools and techniques is not required, and all majors are encouraged to apply. This workshop is open to American undergraduates, preferably rising juniors and seniors. A stipend and housing is provided.

Application deadline: 1 March 2017
