Scholarship@Villanova/Endowed Chair Lecture: Lauren Shohet, PhD
Start Date: 10/30/2012Start Time: 4:15 PM
End Date: 10/30/2012End Time: 6:15 PM
Event Description

Please join us in Falvey Memorial Library’s Speakers’ Corner on Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 4:15 p.m. for a Scholarship@Villanova talk featuring Lauren Shohet, PhD, Luckow Family Endowed Chair and professor of literature in the department of English. The talk is titled “Othello’s ipad: Editing, Adapting, Translating.” The discussion will draw on Dr. Shohet’s recent work on Shakespeare’s Othello in a variety of contexts: editing the play for an ipad app (developed by Luminary Shakespeare LLC), examining its theories of translation in scholarly articles, teaching its global adaptations, and consulting on creating an open-source (partially user-edited) digital database of Renaissance drama (based at the Folger Shakespeare Library). These projects are part of her larger current research focus on adaptation, translation, and re-mediation as questions of relationships between form and history.

The talk will raise questions not only about Othello in its historical context and in our historical context, but also about “contexts” like high school curricula, digital humanities, archives, open sources, books and digital devices.

The audience is invited to interact (play) with materials developed for the ipad app, too!
