Encoding Shelley’s Handwriting

The Shelley-Godwin Archive is currently encoding the manuscript for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, based on the transcription provided by Charles Robinson. He, and other editors of the Bodleian Shelley Manuscripts and Manuscripts of the Younger Romantics, will provide original files to the project team and assist with corrections to printed transcriptions. Textual scholars and students alike will be particularly interested in the collaborative relationship between Mary and Percy in the text. Our encoding schema will distinguish between Mary’s and Percy’s hand, allowing one to search for specific contributions from each Shelley.

Announcing Bamboo DiRT

Project Bamboo is seeking support for a second phase of Mellon-funded development, which will continue to build an infrastructure to support the exploration and curation of texts from a range of large-scale digital collections including the HathiTrust, the Perseus Digital Library, and the Text Creation Partnership. Bamboo has also collaborated with the Digital Research Tools (DiRT) wiki to develop Bamboo DiRT, a rich directory of resources for digital research to which we encourage you to add content.
