Puck: What, a play toward! I'll be an auditor;
 An actor too perhaps, if I see cause.
A Midsummer Night's Dream, 3.1.68-9

The Internet Shakespeare Editions (ISE) is a non-profit corporation, created by letters patent of the Federal Government of Canada. It is affiliated with the University of Victoria both through its academic structure and through the support of the University of Victoria Libraries. Our initial development was also supported by the UVic Industry Partnerships (formerly the Innovation and Development Corporation).

Our mission

The general mission of the ISE is to stimulate a love of Shakespeare's works in a world-wide audience. We do this by:

Board of directors

The ISE is directed by a distinguished Board of Directors, consisting of representatives of a variety of audiences that the ISE site appeals to.

Advisory boards

In addition to the Board of Directors, the ISE has two Advisory Boards:

  1. An Editorial Board of distinguished scholars that advises on academic matters. The Board has representatives from the areas of Shakespeare Studies (editorial, critical, and performance), Textual Analysis, and Humanities Computing.
  2. An Advisory Board for the acquisition of performance materials.
