Area: English Literature
The aim of my thesis is to 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. My research is based around illustrated editions of the Collected Works of William Shakespeare and I am currently curating and creating an open access database of Shakespeare illustrations from this era which will eventually go onto Cardiff University’s Database of Mid Victorian Illustration (see link below). I hope to analyse the philosophical implications inherent in such a project and, ultimately, how digital humanities can play a vital role in educational practices.
