SETS: ENGL*4240 W16, DIGITAL SHAKESPEARE | College of Arts

For those interested in early modern studies and digital humanities, Prof. Mark Kaethler will be leading a course in which students will have the opportunity to partake in the creation of a digital edition of a Lord Mayor’s Show. Students will receive recognition as contributors or creators, will be able to devise their own readings, and will have the opportunity to apply cultural approaches that suit their individual research interests. Taking ecology as house (eco) logic (logy), we will establish points of contact between worlds, exploring various forms of communal inhabitance in early modern and contemporary cityscapes.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
