REED London Online project website:

The REED London Online project aims to bring together documentary evidence of pre-modern London-centric theatre, performance, and music from 1100 to 1650. Growing from the transformational Records of Early English Drama (REED) project that has over four decades changed scholarly understandings of performance culture in England, Scotland, and Wales, REED London Online establishes an openly accessible online collection of archival, editorial, and bibliographic materials. Invaluable to theatre historians, these records have significant value as well to cultural, political and religious historians as well: due to the nature of performance in that period, the records included in the collection are drawn from legal documents, ecclesiastical and household records, personal and diplomatic correspondence. Thus, REED London offers a rich and complex narrative of London city life as well as information about the business of performance.

This week in my HUMN 100 course we began the TEI module, which will see students tagging individual anecdotes in “Tarlton’s Jests” and compiling them into a digital edition. We’ve been wrestling with some computer problems this term that have made the round-table collaborative nature of last fall’s course a bit harder to sustain. Several students have had to work on the lab PCs around the edge of the room, which means their backs are to me, and they’re not connecting with one another, either.
