‘Beginning is not only a kind of action; it is also a frame of mind, a kind of work’
—Edward Said, Beginnings: Intention and Method
How does one begin to speak of beginnings? If the beginning is behind us, how does one begin again? Should one attempt to, and is it up to us to choose?

Shakespeare is now fundamentally digital. The technologies, resources and cultures of the digital age influence how we humans variously read, watch, research, and teach Shakespeare. This influence occurs in both apparent but also unseen ways since digital technologies include hidden processes, or non-human actors such as algorithms. In fact, the thing we call “Shakespeare” is the consequence of the interaction of agential humans and digital, non-human actors. The Special Issue of Humanities explores this technogenic dynamic and its significance for understandings of Shakespeare’s works and their cultural afterlives.
