staff have developed a series of tutorials
that allow students to wrestle with major textual issues at their
own pace. Our goal has been to offer a real-time learning experience
that is both directed and interactive. We have tried not to be prescriptive
or proscriptive in our approach. That is, we lay out questions and
issues but not answers. ERIC will not be a destination of choice
for those seeking quick hits and easy solutions. We have tried to
pique curiosity and spark interest rather than help meet last-minute
tutorials focusing on "Shakespeare in Context"
present viewers with background and contextual material to particular
plays and a series of challenges based on that material. Select
a play; as the presentation unfolds, you may follow links to view
facsimile texts, and from there navigate freely between the texts
themselves and the tutorials. The tutorials treating "The
Early Modern Material Text" introduce viewers to book production
in the period, and suggest that how old books were made and sold
just might affect their "meaning" then and now.
tutorials are easy to use. Set your own pace. Move in and out of
them. Read. Reflect. Enjoy the experience of reading the Renaissance.
