NINES Workshop

NINES Workshop in Digital Scholarship

This is to announce a week-long workshop for scholars undertaking digital projects in nineteenth-century British and American literary and cultural studies. The workshop will be held at the University of Virginia, 18-22 July 2005, and will provide a practical setting where scholars can work at the development of their individual projects with other scholars who have shared interests, goals, and problems to be addressed. The theoretical, technical, administrative, and institutional issues connected to the development of digital scholarly work will focus the workshop's activities, which will be organized around and driven by the needs of the specific projects themselves.

The workshops will be run by faculty and staff at U. of Virginia involved with the NINES (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-Century Electronic Scholarship) and ARP (Applied Research in Patacriticism) projects.

British Fiction, 1800–1829

Charles E. Robinson has just brought to our attention an important new Website entitled "British Fiction, 1800–1829: A Database of Production, Circulation, and Reception."

Produced in Cardiff University’s Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research, the site "allows users to examine bibliographical records of 2,272 works of fiction written by approximately 900 authors, along with a large number of contemporary materials (including anecdotal records, circulating-library catalogues, newspaper advertisements, reviews, and subscription lists)."

New Byron Society Websites

The Byron Society of America is pleased to announce two new Websites: one for the Byron Society of America; and the other for the Byron Society Collection at the University of Delaware.

Please go to http://www.english.udel.edu/byron/ where you will find a splash page or gateway to both sites, from each of which you can easily negotiate to the other.

In the Byron Society Website, you will encounter such things as membership benefits and forms, a history of recent Byron papers at the MLA, a list of the first five Leslie A. Marchand Memorial Lectures (with McGann's lecture available in full text and with others to follow, including the wonderful lecture that Romulus Linney delivered this past Friday), and application forms for travel grants for graduate students.
