Virtually Alive Literature
Humanities courses are starting to be deeply influenced by a new array of powerful digital tools and vast online archives. Undergraduates are experiencing Shakespeare in 3-D: "'Until you get Shakespeare on its feet, you’re doing it an injustice... 'The plays are in 3-D, not 2-D.'
Many teachers and administrators are only beginning to figure out the contours of this emerging field of digital humanities, and how it should be taught. In the classroom, however, digitally savvy undergraduates are not just ready to adapt to the tools but also to explore how new media may alter the very process of reading, interpretation and analysis."
