Uit de aankondiging door Dirk van Hulle op de textual scholarship mailing list:

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Beckett Digital
Manuscript Project, a collaboration between the Centre for Manuscript
Genetics (University of Antwerp), the Beckett International Foundation
(University of Reading) and the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center
(University of Texas at Austin). The project is supported by the Estate
of Samuel Beckett, and is published by the University Press of Antwerp.

The purpose of the Beckett Digital Manuscript Project is to reunite the
manuscripts of Samuel Beckett’s works in a digital way, and to
facilitate genetic research: the project brings together digital
facsimiles of documents that are now preserved in different holding
libraries, and adds transcriptions of Beckett’s manuscripts, tools for
bilingual and genetic version comparison, and a search engine. The
project also enhances the preservation of Beckett’s manuscripts.

The BDMP consists of two parts:

(a) a digital archive of Samuel Beckett’s manuscripts
(www.beckettarchive.org, organized in
research modules. Each of these modules comprises digital facsimiles and
transcriptions of all the extant manuscripts pertaining to an individual
text, or in the case of shorter texts, a group of texts.

(b) a series of print volumes analyzing the genesis of the texts
contained in the corresponding electronic environment.

The editorial schedule of the BDMP envisages the publication of one
module per year, and will run to 2037. The first electronic module,
which comprises /Stirrings Still / Soubresautes /and ‘comment dire /
what is the word’, edited by Dirk Van Hulle, and the corresponding
volume /The Making of /Stirrings Still / Soubresauts/and ‘comment dire’
/ ‘what is the word’/ (Brussels: ASP/University Press Antwerp, 2011,
ISBN: 9789054879121) are now available. See www.beckettarchive.org
for details.

The BDMP is a collaborative research project, undertaken by and for the
scholarly Beckett community; we invite colleagues to participate and to
comment on the project. The project relies on subscriptions (individual
and institutional) by the community to ensure its continuation and
successful completion.
