Educational Resources (Free): Oxford University Press Launches “Illuminating Shakespeare” Website
From Oxford University Press:
As part of the 2016 global ‘Shakespeare 400’ year, Oxford University Press (OUP) is making a wealth of resources freely available in a new website.
For centuries, OUP has been publishing much of the finest Shakespeare scholarship in the world, at every level from school texts to scholarly research. The result is a treasure trove of resources including print and online scholarship; books for general readership; Complete Works and individual play texts; journal articles; linguistic analysis; teaching materials for schools; and choral compositions.
Launched on 1 December 2015, the ‘Illuminating Shakespeare’ website curates this content in a series of monthly themes, with material designed to interest and inform students, school teachers, academics, playgoers – anyone who wants to explore Shakespeare’s works and life.
Each month’s theme is introduced with an exclusive new video essay by a leading Shakespearean, such as Columbia’s Julie Crawford, The Shakespeare Institute’s Michael Dobson, The Globe’s Farah Karim-Cooper, KCL’s Gordon McMullan, Florida State’s Gary Taylor, GWU’s Ayanna Thompson, and the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s Stanley Wells. New blog articles by experts develop the themes further, and for higher level research, selected articles from OUP’s journals and online scholarship are made free for 2016.
Infographics, quizzes, and an online Shakespeare dictionary also provide stimulating resources for study and enjoyment.
