Digital Mitford: The Mary Russell Mitford Archive Site Redirect



Mary Russell Mitford

Welcome to the Digital Mitford, an active digital humanities project begun in April 2013, with the formation of the Mary Russell Mitford Society at the 18th- and 19th-century British Women Writers’ Conference in Albuquerque. We organized the society and the project for these purposes:

  1. to produce the first comprehensive scholarly edition of the works and letters of Mary Russell Mitford, and
  2. to share knowledge of TEI XML and other related humanities computing practices with all serious scholars interested in contributing to the project.

As of 2013-2014 our project is just launching, but we are pleased to feature our work in progress, beginning with Mitford’s play Julian, A Tragedy in Five Acts, our project’s codebook, our workshop orientation materials, our working list of archives holding Mitford manuscripts, and our working bibliography of Mitford’s published texts.

As we code digital editions of Mitford’s texts we also plan to assemble a record of important people, places, and events, and develop a social network analysis to demonstrate how the widely published Mitford connected with a wide range of correspondents and contemporaries around the world. Please read our “About” page for more detail on our methods and practice.
