Abstract

Shakespeare�s Othello, along with much of his other work, has been translated by many people over the last 300 or so years. The variations in these translations provide a powerful platform to study the literature in more detail, as well as the changes in culture and society over time. Further, recent developing phenomenon on the Web now provide new technologies and opportunities to study these varying translations at global scale, as well as creating a domain to further study the evolving Web. This paper describes a new project that aims to leverage recent developments in the Web to help understand both literature and cultural history in unprecedented ways. We believe that our work can then generalize to other literature.
