Digital Cavendish

Digital Cavendish

The Digital Cavendish aims to highlight digital research and scholarly projects that focus on any aspect of the life and writings of Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle (1623–73). Research may include digital images, annotations, text-mining, cultural archives, digital portfolios of manuscript and bibliographic research, etc. Ultimately, the site will grow to build a collaborative space for Cavendish scholars and students interested in the areas of literary, historical, digital, textual, bibliographic, manuscript, cultural, feminist, queer, and critical race studies, and become a space for those who wish to share their work.

Database of Early Modern German Physicians’ Letters

Database of Early Modern German Physicians’ Letters

Started in 2009, the database now offers free online access to the records of about 45,000 letters written by or to learned physicians in the German lands between 1500 and 1700. These letters contain a wealth of information not only about medical and natural philosophical issues but also on family matters, political and confessional conflicts, on cities and courts and many other topics. In addition to the basic data (names, date, places), thousands of datasets contain a detailed summary of the letter in question. Recently, an English-language user surface has been added and over the next years English translations of the German summaries will be added.

CESAR is a resource for French theater of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It offers two major interlinked facilities — a database and an imagebank — but also supplementary materials (complete online versions of key compendia, a corpus of contemporary reviews, police reports and treatises), all of which are accessible from either the database or the imagebank.

Bibliographie de la litterature française

Bibliographie de la litterature française

The Bibliographie de la littérature française (BLF) is coedited by the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the Société d’histoire littéraire de la France, and Classiques Garnier Numérique. The bibliographic tool documents all the studies on French-speaking literature from the sixteenth century to the present day which have appeared between 1998 and the present day both in France and abroad. Conceived as a veritable crossroads of information, it constitutes a unique resource for researchers, professors, students, and, more broadly, all those seeking to inform themselves on French-speaking literature or on a particular writer, theme or period. The online BLF is updated daily, as and when publications are recorded by specialists.
