Shakespearean research: internet and the Globe Theatre


The internationally regarded Renaissance Texts Research Centre, in collaboration with many other parties, has played a key role in the development of the Globe Theatre in London. Detailed research by staff at the university has turned The Globe into a theatrical laboratory and a major educational resource for the nation and the world. Great interest was stimulated among scholars, teachers and students at all levels, and this was hugely increased by the creation of a website used by two and a half million people per year.
