Cambridge University Library


The event will mark the University Library’s hosting of the major new digital edition of works by Arthur Schnitzler. There will be a set of short presentations on the methods of the edition and the resources it provides, followed by a reception.

From April 2019, the University Library will be hosting the digital critical edition of middle- and late-period works by Arthur Schnitzler (the larger part of whose literary estate is held by the Library). The edition, core-funded by the AHRC and the German Academy of Sciences, is a collaboration between editorial teams working in Germany (Wuppertal) and the UK (Cambridge and UCL), with technical development teams in Trier (the Center for Digital Humanities) and at the University Library.

The event will introduce participants to this cutting-edge digital edition, its methods and toolbox (in particular Transcribo, the transcription software developed by the Trier team). There will also be a presentation of the panoramic digital resource, Schnitzler Story Spheres, commissioned by the UK team from filmmaker and digital artist, Frederick Baker. The presentations will be followed by open discussion and a wine reception.
