London Stage project

Leave a comment

In my book project, I explore the culture of adaptation and revival in the repertory theater of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. My digital humanities research extends this interest in historical imagination, transmission, and revival. I am currently at work on an attempt to recover the London Stage Information Bank, a humanities computing initiative that took place at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI from 1970 to 1978. In collaboration with archivists at Lawrence, personnel from the original project, and experts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Utah State University — including research data specialists, library and information studies faculty, and computing staff — I have uncovered and begun restoring the project’s damaged data and code. I presented initial findings and reflections on this work at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies 2014 Annual Meeting, the Modern Language Association 2015 Annual Meeting, the Digital Humanities Project Toolkit course in the School of Library and Information Studies at UW-Madison, the Rebecca J. Holz Series in Research Data Management, and DHU2: The Second Annual Utah Symposium on the Digital Humanities. An essay about the project so far appears in Digital Humanities Quarterly (Fall 2017).
