Digital Dickens Working Notes Project

Posted by Anna Gibson on January 9, 2015

The Dickens Notes Project will digitize Charles Dickens's working notes for his novels alongside their serial parts. The project will provide scholars and students with a comprehensive and interactive fluid edition of Dickens's working notes that highlights the connections between notes and novel, annotates the notes, and demonstrates the process of Dickens's serial form.

Digital Thoreau

Posted by Paul Schacht on February 3, 2012

The core of Digital Thoreau will be a TEI-encoded text of Walden enriched by scholarly annotations, links, images, and social tools that enable users to create conversations around the text.

The annotations from Walden: An Annotated Edition, edited by Thoreau biographer Walter Harding, together with digital assets from the the Thoreau Society’s Harding Collection (curated by the Thoreau Institute Library at The Walden Woods Project) provide a base layer of context on which future layers will be built.

Macromedia / Adobe Director PAD (Preservation, Access, Dissemination)

Posted by Leonardo Flores on January 5, 2012

I am a professor and researcher on electronic literature, and I'm interested in developing a critical edition of a work of electronic literature titled Arteroids (http://vispo.com/arteroids). This is an important work of electronic literature, written by Canadian poet and multimedia artist Jim Andrews initially with Macromedia Director 8 and later with upgraded versions up until reaching Adobe Director MX 2004 (version 10.1).
