Abstract

This essay presents an overview of some of the challenges related to publishing the findings of a large-scale research project on Shakespeare—specifically the Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project or CASP; www.canadianshakespeares.ca—on the World Wide Web. Our purpose in writing the essay is to allow others undertaking large-scale, IT-based projects related to Shakespeare—or any other Humanities research that involves extensive database manipulation on the Web—to understand and resolve some of the problems they will face: whether related to site architecture; database design and management; copyright; use of multimedia; and a host of other related issues that pose significant obstacles to presenting research via a web-based context. Humanities computing projects like CASP provide valuable testing grounds for realizing the inherent potential associated with new technologies. But even as they do so, the process of creating these resources lays bare the difficulties confronting new forms of knowledge as they are mobilized in formats that challenge traditional modes of research publication.
