My research is in collaboration with the English Broadside Ballad Archive and the Early Modern Center at UCSB, and as a part of the Arnhold Undergraduate Research Program, in the creation of "Come Live With Me: Living the History of a Ballad," an interactive space that is not only a useful to scholars and teachers, but also students and curious individuals. The site will be an interactive multimedia research tool intended to facilitate the study of both the poem and the broadside ballad of Christopher Marlowe’s “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” through a wide range of offerings. These include an interactive timeline, side by side transcriptions of the various versions of the poem with annotations, mini-essays accompanying information on the printing and publication history, analysis, information on the ballad illustrations and tune, as well as detailed information on the many replies, responses, and parodies of the work ranging from the early modern period to modern day.
The website, powered by WordPress, itself will be private until it is finished this June where it will go live.
