The James Malcolm Rymer Collection

Posted by Rebecca Nesvet on August 10, 2017

The James Malcolm Rymer Collection is an open-access collection of documentary editions of the works of James Malcolm Rymer (1814-84), creator of the Dracula precursor Varney the Vampire and Sweeney Todd. The first text to be added is Rymer's The String of Pearls, or the Barber of Fleet Street (1850), with transcription, encoding, annotations, and graphic and web design primarily by undergraduate students at the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay. We have some project collaborators outside UWGB and are interested in hearing from anyone who wants to get involved.

The Salman Rushdie Archive Project

Posted by Tawnya Ravy on May 22, 2012

The Salman Rushdie Archive Project is a resource for Rushdie scholars and a platform for scholarship in Rushdie Studies. Salman Rushdie remains a culturally relevant author whose work and celebrity status consistently shape larger conversations about South Asian studies, geopolitics, and popular culture. While there are many blogs and websites devoted to opinions and information on Rushdie, there is no single web source for all the online data available on the author and his work.
