MIT Global Shakespeares: Video & Performance Archive offers online access to videos of Shakespeare's plays performed worldwide, both on stage and on film, as well as video interviews, written essays, and reviews of many productions. Viewers can browse this extensive collection by play, language, and geographic region. In addition, researchers can also conduct a keyword search. Full-length videos are available for many of the stage productions, and there are also short clips of film scenes. This collaborative project is directed and edited by Peter S. Donaldson, MIT's Ford International Professor in the Humanities, in collaboration with a team of regional editors at universities around the world. This archive is designed to "promote cross-cultural understanding and serve as a core resource for students, teachers, and researchers" and to celebrate Shakespeare as a truly global literary figure whose work can bridge cultures.
