Digital Projects, 2018-2021
Britt Mize is the author of the Beowulf’s Afterlives BIbliographic Database, which offers the most complete and correct documentation of Beowulf representations, versions, and adaptational engagements from their beginnings—in Wanley’s transcription of two segments of the poem in 1705—through 2020. The bibliography’s entries range from photographic facsimiles and transcriptions to academic facilitations such as editions and traditional translations, as well as all types of freer adaptations or remakings that recycle Beowulf or salient elements of it into new creative works. Dr. Mize works in collaboration with web developer Bryan Tarpley, and has received support for the database from the Department of English, the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research, and the Center of Digital Humanities Research.
The World Shakespeare Bibliography Online, led by Editor Heidi Craig, is a collaboration between the Department of English and the Folger Shakespeare Library. The WSB Editorial team – including Dr. Craig and Associate Editors Dr. Kris May and Dr. Dorothy Todd — works with scholars around the world to provide access to Shakespeare-related scholarship and theatrical productions from 1960 to the present.
Amy Earhart maintains the Millican “Riot,” 1868 project. The Millican project focuses on a local history event, the Millican Race Riot of 1868, what we believe to be the largest “race riot” in Texas. The conflict occurred in Millican, Texas, a town located 15 miles from the Texas A&M University campus. Dr. Earhart’s work on this project, in collaboration with community partners, has resulted in a Texas Historical Marker which will soon be in place at the site.
Susan Egenolf is an Editor of The Maria Edgeworth Letters Project, a NEH-funded, collaborative digital edition of Edgeworth’s correspondence. Other Editors and team members hail from the University of Tennessee, Wake Forest University, and Xavier University of Louisiana.
The Center of Digital Humanities Research (CoDHR), directed by Laura Mandell, is home to several digital projects, including the New Variorum Shakespeare (NVS) a collaboration with the Modern Language Association. Edited by an international group of distinguished Shakespeare scholars, the NVS provides digital variorum editions of Shakesepare’s plays to support advanced research on these important texts.
Laura Mandell is the editor of The Poetess Archive, a bibliography of writings by and about popular poetry written between 1750 and 1900 in Britain and America.
