Letters and Texts: Intellectual Berlin around 1800

Research group led by Anne Baillot, Berlin, Humboldt-Universität, 2012ff. "This edition presents texts that were until this day either completely unpublished or published in an abridged form. Conceived and developed in cooperation with the archives that preserve them, this edition provides a digital access to the original manuscripts. The editorial and scholarly work on the manuscripts is realized by the junior research group "Berlin intellectuals 1800-1830".
The first corpora edited since March 2012 are: 20 letters from Adolf von Buch to Louis de Beausobre from the period 1759-1764 (in French), 23 letters from Ludwig Tieck to Friedrich von Raumer from the period 1815-1830 (in German), 17 letters from Adelbert von Chamisso to Louis de La Foye (1804-1812, mostly German), 4 letters from August Boeckh to Varnhagen von Ense and the Prussian Ministry of Culture (1812-1839, in German), Boeckh’s list of his personal library (in German), Tieck's youth drama "Roxane" (1789/90, in German), the original manuscript of E.T.A. Hoffmann's "Der Sandmann" (1815, in German), and two texts by Helmina von Chézy (1844, in German)." [from resource]

British War Poetry in the Age of Romanticism 1793-1815

Ed. by Orianne Smith, A Romantic Circles Electronic Edition, College Park (MD), University of Maryland, o.D. "This electronic edition is not a facsimile of the original print edition [from 1976]. Some changes have been necessary in order to make the transition from a print to an electronic version. Hyperlinking and the structures of organization made possible by HTML markup are the most obvious changes. In addition, some footnotes have been slightly updated. The edition will we hope continue to evolve in later iterations. Eventually, we plan to produce an XML version at Romantic Circles that will be accessible and useable in more flexible, database-driven searches of these poems—as well as additional poems that could be aggregated by that time."

IOSPE - Ancient Inscriptions of the Northern Black Sea

Directed by Askold Ivantchik and Irene Polinskaya, London: King's College London, 2011. "The aims of the project include a new study of all Ancient Greek and Latin inscriptions originating from the Northern Coast of the Black Sea; and publication of Russian and English critical editions of the inscriptions in print and digital formats. [...] The new conception of the IOSPE corpus consists in capturing in its entirety the ancient epigraphic production of the northern Pontic region – that is, not only inscriptions made on stone (lapidary inscriptions), but also on other media and fabrics, such as ceramics, metal, and bone. [...] The first stage of the project involves publication of Lapidary Inscriptions. There will be about 5,000 lapidary texts published in IOSPE, about three times as many as in the original corpus."

IRT - The Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania

Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, by J. M. Reynolds and J. B. Ward-Perkins, enhanced electronic reissue by Gabriel Bodard and Charlotte Roueché (2009). ISBN 978-1-897747-23-0. "The first publication of Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania, which appeared in 1952, has long been out of print. Produced in post-war conditions, it only included illustrations of a few inscriptions, although very many of them had been photographed; and it only offered limited geographic information.
The purposes of this enhanced reissue are, therefore, to make the original material available again, and to provide the full photographic record, together with geographical data linking the inscriptions to maps and gazetteers, and so to other resources. Electronic publication makes this possible, and also allows us to offer greater functionality, such as free text searches. We have included the material from the supplement which contained further texts, numbered in the same sequence (973-996): 'Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania: a supplement', published in PBSR 23 (1955), 124-147, and we have incorporated corrections and emendations made in that article; but we have not attempted to alter or emend any item otherwise.
The indices of this edition are generated from the texts themselves. This means that in some cases they will diverge from those in the original edition, usually being fuller: but the material in three texts not included in that edition (261, 262 and 855) and the Neo-Punic personal names do not appear in these indices."

Moralische Wochenschriften

Klaus-Dieter Ertler, Alexandra Fuchs, Michaela Fischer und Elisabeth Hobisch. Graz: Zentrum für nformationsmodellierung in den Geisteswissenschaften, 2011. "Die journalistische Gattung der „Spectators“ oder Moralischen Wochenschriften, welche in England zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts ihren Ausgang nahm, verbreitete sich bald in ganz Europa, bevor sie zu einem wichtigen Indikator für das Diskurssystem der Aufklärung wurde. Unser auf mehrere Jahre angelegtes Projekt verfolgt das Ziel, eine zentrale Datenbank für sämtliche europäische Moralische Wochenschriften zu erstellen. Derzeit stehen Darstellungen und Analysen von spanischen, italienischen und französischen Texten zur Verfügung. Dabei werden zahlreiche Perspektiven der Darstellungsebenen und Erzählformen sichtbar gemacht." [from resource]

Ogham in 3D

Nora White (Pricipal Investigator), Dublin: Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, 2015 "Ogham stones are among Ireland's most remarkable national treasures. These perpendicular cut stones bear inscriptions in the uniquely Irish Ogham alphabet, using a system of notches and horizontal or diagonal lines/scores to represent the sounds of an early form of the Irish language. The stones are inscribed with the names of prominent people and sometimes tribal affiliation or geographical areas. These inscriptions constitute the earliest recorded form of Irish and, as our earliest written records dating back at least as far as the 5th century AD, are a significant resource for historians, as well as linguists and archaeologists. [...] The ultimate aim of the Ogham in 3D project is to laser-scan as many as possible of the approximately four hundred surviving Ogham stones and to make these 3D models freely available on the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies website as part of a multi-disciplinary archive of Ogham stones."

Verse Miscellanies Online - Printed Poetry Collections of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries

Directed by Michelle O’Callaghan, Reading: University of Reading, 2011ff. "Verse Miscellanies Online is a searchable critical edition of seven printed verse miscellanies published in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries.

These tools help to demonstrate the ways in which individual collections engage with one another through sharing poems, poetical forms, topoi and themes. Context for understanding how these books were composed, published and read and who was involved in their production is also provided on this site. [...] Overall, the edition is designed to allow the modern reader to keep the intertextuality and malleability of early modern poetical culture always in view." [from resource]
