Getting in DEEP: Teaching Shakespeare in Print with the Database of Early English Playbooks

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Using the Database of Early English Playbooks (DEEP), students in my undergraduate Shakespeare course completed assignments on Hamlet and derived their topics for archival research papers on the print or performance of a Shakespeare play. Designed as an analytical database, DEEP compiles bibliographical information for every known English playbook printed through 1660. The highly specialized data in DEEP might deter some instructors from introducing the resource to undergraduates; however, I will show how such a customized database actually provides students with a supportive framework for in-depth inquiry into the history of early modern drama. With drop-down menus that list the names of authors, genres, theater companies, and stationers—all in modernized spellings—DEEP encourages students to develop complex research questions by combining search terms and to experience the thrill of making new discoveries about Shakespeare and his printed plays.
