Zakharov N. V. The Cambridge World Shakespeare Encyclopedia on Paper and on the Internet

Abstract ♦ The article deals with the Cambridge World Shakespeare Encyclopedia as a shining example of the high potential digital humanities possess for learning, researching and creative work.

The universal character of Shakespeare’s texts remains in the focus of attention of both professionals and amateur enthusiasts. His heritage has long become part of the high school and university curricula. In the recent years, Internet projects have joined the educational Shakespearean sphere and now form its integral part. The practice of MOOCs (МООС — Massive Open Online Courses) is rapidly growing. In Russia, though, experimenting with online education is still at the stage of gestation.

At the end of the year 2014, both the print and digital versions of The Cambridge World Shakespeare Encyclopedia will be published. So far, it is the most ambitious project among the English-language counterparts of “The World of Shakespeare” Electronic Encyclopedia. Its goal is to accumulate an unprecedentedly large compendium of knowledge on Shakespeare and his place in the modern world, both in the print and electronic form, including the aspects never before systematized. Among the large CWSE team were several Russian scholars, some of whom are part of the Institute of Fundamental and Applied Studies, Moscow University for the Humanities, where several projects devoted to Shakespeare and his work had been developed over the last decade.

Keywords: Shakespeare encyclopedias, digital humanities, Shakespearean sphere, W. Shakespeare.
