Migration: successful!

Our edition is now hosted by the Trier Center for Digital Humanities. The corpora have landed softly, the SVN is now operational (thanks to the technical team in Trier!) – in other words: we can get back to work on the edition. Boeckh and Euler are the ones who will be lucky enough to be enriched soon. I am working on finding the necessary funding to wrap up the Chamisso-de la Foye and the Raumer-Tieck correspondences quickly as well. No surprises so far. But some new features are in the making as well.

Hybridation Means

Although I had carefully avoided to confront myself with the question of how the digital version of our edition of Boeckh’s Encyklopädie (see here for more detail on that) was supposed to compare to the print version, I was compelled to do so this afternoon under the pressure of my co-grant applicants. The fashionable way to edit is definitely to have both a digital and a print version: an hybrid edition. But even that leaves a wide range of options. One way is to have a book version shorter than the digital version is. Another way is to have a digital...

“Lettres et textes. Le Berlin intellectuel des années 1800”: une présentation

L’édition numérique “Lettres et textes. Le Berlin intellectuel des années 1800” est en cours de réalisation et devrait être achevée courant 2015; les premiers corpus ont été mis en ligne en mars 2012. Réalisée par le groupe de recherche junior “Les intellectuels berlinois entre 1800 et 1830”, elle est en fait moins centrée sur le premier tiers du XIXème siècle qu’il n’y paraît. L’objectif scientifique qui constitue la matrice de l’édition en matière de codage et de mise en page est bien celui du groupe de recherche, mais il est focalisé sur un ensemble de textes et de personnes choisis...

Why letters? Because letters!

I have always sworn by letters. It started when I was 12. First, I loved receiving them. Then, writing them. In those lucky times when, like most people, I had no idea what an e-mail is, I found everything about postality enjoyable. Checking on the mailbox again and again, opening the envelope, unfolding the letter, reading it and wondering at what time of day the sender wrote it, from where, with what pen, expecting what from me reading it. I was 17 and ripping out an envelope was some sort of telepathic moment that repeated the closeness of two writing...

Corpus Part Two: My dearest friend (to whom I owe so much money)

In my post Corpus Part One, I presented the work manuscript of Ludwig Tieck’s Roxane, a youth drama which Johanna Preusse is editing. Now Ludwig Tieck did not only have several focus of interest, he also lived a very long life, being thus able to experience the early Romanticism, the Napoleonian Wars, the Revolution of 1848 and in between all that, several moments of Restauration. Through this long period of time, the one who was in his young years one of the very first writers to actually live on his book sells, refusing any form of dependency from a Prince,...
