Tredegar

Posted by lee Ann Ghajar on September 2, 2011

This archival site on Tredegar Iron Works, Richmond, Virginia, in the latter half of the nineteenth century is very much in the beta/inception/conception stages--barely off the ground. Specifically this is intended to explore the ironworks, business and technology of the iron industry, and the interlocking elements of local, state, and regional history.

BRANCH: Britain, Representation and Nineteenth-Century History

Posted by Dino Felluga on August 29, 2011

To date, there is no open-access central resource for the study of 19th-century history and culture. Each such anthology is proprietary, often with password-protected web sites that accompany the hard-copy books. What is required is a website that provides this information in a free, expansive, searchable, reliable, peer-reviewed, easy-to-use format. I am creating a central resource for high school and university teachers seeking a comprehensive overview of the period 1789-1910.

Villanelle Anthology

Posted by Amanda French on August 11, 2011

This is a hobby project I've just started to create a database of villanelles. For my dissertation, I collected a list of over 300 villanelles, and I have full text for many of them. I also have a lot of secondary materials, entries from poetry handbooks and the like.
