             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 website:


    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!
