Mission Statement

What do we do/what have we done/what are we going to do?

Students and faculty members at Belmont University have created a web-based digital archive of Nashville’s local Shakespeare performances, documenting each adaptation through videos, photos, and text.

How do we do it?

Students in Belmont’s Shakespeare and Digital Literacy courses have attended the production, met with members of the cast and individuals in charge of production, and have organized and included what they deemed the most important information in the archive, as well as designing and coding the archive and creating content to include in the archive.

Whom do we do it for?

Students involved in the project organized the information in hopes that it would be helpful to anyone researching local Shakespeare performances.

What value are we bringing?

With resources from The Folger Shakespeare Library and the Lila D. Bunch Library at Belmont University, the Nashville Shakespeare Digital Archive is contributing to future students and classes in Shakespeare at all levels of education and throughout the world.
