Embodying Shakespeare

Just as I am starting preparations for my course on the body in early modern culture, comes this fantastic call for papers from Brett D. Hirsh:

One thought on “Embodying Shakespeare

  1. I was reading this post on Embodying Shakespeare (and your frequent references to libraries) and wanted to post a quick comment that I thought your readers would be interested in. Hopefully, this post itself is serendipity.

    As the Bard said, ‘Tis better to be brief than tedious, so I’ll be brief.

    Aside from being a reader, I’m with ECNext, AccessMyLibrary’s online marketing agency. AccessMyLibrary is a library advocacy site featuring Thomson Gale’s online content, including a lot of Shakespeare related content. We’re helping Thomson Gale spread the word about online resources available courtesy of local libraries.

    This week is National Library Week and we’re highlighting “The Shakespeare Collection” as part of the week’s events.

    The Shakespeare Collection is a free search engine that is all Shakespeare, all the time. You can access original works, adaptations, criticism and commentary by selecting “The Shakespeare Collection” from the list of free databases on our National Library Week page:
