Proposals should include an abstract clearly outlining the objectives, methodologies, and significance of the proposed presentation.

Coming Soon: World War I Diary of Albert Huet

A few years ago, my aunt made a discovery while cleaning my grandfather’s garage: a small notebook where my great-grandfather had written his memories and thoughts about World War I. We do not know when he wrote it but it is still in great condition.
We decided to digitize it for several reasons. First, this is a way for us to preserve it. Second, we thought it would be a valuable document for anyone, be they a high-school student or a scholar, to learn about the life and the views of a young man, coming from the countryside of Normandy with no proper education and training, and who was sent to fight and kill the enemy as he turned 18. And just as Albert Huet entered the war in 1916, 100 years later, I will share with you his diary.
I am currently working on the transcription as Albert’s handwriting can sometimes be hard to read but as soon as this is done, I will share everything with you.

Digital Literary Studies

What an exciting piece of news. A new journal has launched today. Say hello to Digital Literary Studies, a journal intended to act as an international peer-reviewed interdisciplinary publication with a focus on those aspects of Digital Humanities primarily concerned with literary studies. For more information on the journal, check out James O’Sullivan’s blog post on our blog, 100 Digital Discoveries. And if you are thinking of submitting an article, don’t forget to check the Call for Papers.
I will be in charge of the “Communications” side of Digital Literary Studies, alongside Giorgio Guzzetta, researcher in narrative, cultural studies & digital humanities at the University of Cork, Ireland.
