Abstract

Our SAGITTARIUS–ORION–Shaw Literature Digitizing Pilot Project confirms the need to shift the focus from content to method. Despite recent developments in state-of-the-art digital humanities applications, there is an urgent need less to amass textual and contextual materials or to apply complicated humanities computing, than to find out realistically how to teach Shaw in ways that are contemporary, inclusive, and equitable. Students in our school pilots are of heterogeneous backgrounds, often have no prior knowledge of Shaw, yet can be flexibly engaged when the digitized textual and contextual materials are used as tools to enable them to learn more about themselves and the world they live in.
