Since its launch in 2010 the MIT Global Shakespeares Video and Performance Archive has been at the forefront of efforts to use modern technologies as tools for understanding the continuing relevance of Shakespeare in the modern world. Through the archive and focused educational initiatives the project is playing a major leadership role internationally in moving Shakespearean scholarship and teaching toward new models that draw from the full range of global theatrical production. Working with a global network of editors and collaborators, MIT’s Shakespeare Project is expanding its collections and developing authoring tools for education that can be easily used at all levels — from advanced scholars to university and high school students and the general public.
