Global Shakespeares electronic archive

I spent yesterday over at MIT working with Belinda Yung on the Arab world section of the  “Global Shakespeares electronic archive.  I’m the “regional editor.”  We’ve already put up skeletal production info on a few Arab productions and adaptations of Shakespeare – you can expect a lot more in a week or two, including extensive clips from Mohamed Sobhi (محمد صبحي)’s melodramatic 1970s Hamlet production with the Art Studio company. 

If you have text or video materials on more plays, please send them to me so we can get them posted!

Seeking video of Arab/ic Shakespeare performances

The Global Shakespeares web archive at MIT has gone live — with virtually no content on its Arab World section. There’s only my placeholder introduction. 
Yalla! Let’s send our archivist friends some video to include in the site.  Any leads can be sent to me or to Prof. Peter Donaldson, the site’s editor-in-chief.
