Abstract

This session, organised on behalf of the Records of Early English Drama Project (REED), concentrates on the uses of digital technology in the research into early drama records such as undertaken by the REED project. REED has long been involved with digital technology and has recently made all of their volumes freely available via the Internet Archive and uploaded a new research and educational website. The papers in this session will look at the new technological steps being made by the REED project, and contrast them with innovative new methods of digital analysis of early drama records taking place outside the REED project.
