Ellen MacKay Collaborates on iPad Shakespeare Apps

IDAH Fellow Ellen MacKay, Associate Professor of English and Theatre Studies, contributed to the lecture stream of "The Tempest" for iPad, a Shakespeare Application produced by South Bend-based Luminary Digital Media. MacKay will direct the App for "A Midsummer Night's Dream," which will  be released during the 2012-2013 academic year.

"Working with IDAH has made me think much more broadly and deeply about the digital world," MacKay said. "The manipulability, open-endedness and interactive components of this platform are really exciting."

"The app moves the process of reading a book away from an information-extraction model and turns it into an activity that brings an array of ideas and texts into a larger conversation. It keeps the text in constant but always changing contact with other works, other readers and other forms of cultural information. It provides teachers a handy way to show students that they're curators of their own context, and that the work is always open to new readings, new histories and new milieus."

Osgood, a film maker and Telecommunications professor, received funding for the project through a 2011 New Frontiers Grant, and began implementing the project through an IDAH Fellowship.
