Shakespeare, Classical heritage, source study

Closely connected with other projects on source and reception studies, such as SENS (, Classical and Early Modern English Drama ( and ISS - Intercultural Shakespeare Studies (, SCS explores Shakespeare's ‘debts’ to ancient Greek and Latin literature, often concealed under plural and often non-dramatic mediations. The project includes the setting up of a relational database.
