Not Without Qualms: Shakespeare, Digitization, and Critical Making

7 October @ 6.30 pm - 8.00 pm

Free

Scholars once searched out lost manuscripts; now computational analysis promises to identify signature features “encoded in the text,” as Peter Kirwan puts it. This talk addresses what happens when we use digital tools to read Shakespeare in the opposite direction – not as the source of unparalleled poetic influence, but as the storehouse of a culture’s proverbs, jokes, and mottos. The speaker is Ellen Mackay, Associate Professor of English at the University of Chicago.
