Subject: ERIC: The English Renaissance in Context
I'm posting the following message to a number of lists,
mostly Renaissance; but some of these materials may
interest a readership interested in the humanistic
use of computers and digital technpologies, as well.
I apologize both for overlaps and for unwelcome intru-
sions, if that is what this is. These materials can be
very useful, however; and your suggestions about how to
make them even more useful -- and to broad constituencies
-- are, as my colleague Michael Ryan says in his message
below, VERY welcome.

The University of Pennsylvania Library and Penn's Department of English
invite you to browse and use the rich array of tutorials in its Project
ERIC, "The English Renaissance in Context," was co-developed by Professor
Rebecca Bushnell and Library staff in the Schoenberg Center for Electronic
Text & Image. It is based on the premise that teaching English Renaissance
Literature by using texts in their original formats (here reproduced
virtually) provides students with an important dimension that would
otherwise be unavailable to them. The site features a series of eight
tutorials on Shakespearean plays and on the nature of early modern
printing and publishing. And the site nestles within a corpus of over 300
facsimiles from the early modern period, which may be used in conjunction
with the tutorials.
Feedback is welcome!
