We invite you to join members of the Digital Mitford project team from Saturday June 25 through Monday June 27, 2016 for the Fourth Annual Workshop Series and Coding School, hosted by the newly established Center for the Digital Text at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg.
The Digital Mitford team coordinated a massive effort last fall to complete a burst of coding, in particular to finish up transcriptions of assigned letters and to research and develop new prosopography entries–that is, entries on our lists of Named Entities: people (and fictional characters), organizations, places (and fictional places), books, serial publications, works of […]
Three of us on the Mitford team (Elisa, Elizabeth, and Lisa–the three of us, coincidentally, with the most similar first names) are at the University of Alberta in Edmonton this week for the Digital Diversity conference, and among other things we’ve been talking about our experiences with involving our students in the Digital Mitford project.

The photo was taken by Henry Fox Talbot, and is one of a kind of early photo that he invented called a “Talbotype”, roughly contemporary with the daguerrotype. The Talbotype is apparently undated, but it must be from the 1840s or 50s, […]
We’ve updated our workflow for editing the Digital Mitford project, as we discussed in our coding hangout today in Google+. For those of you who could not attend, or those who had wonky network connections, or for anyone who needs to review what we discussed today, I’ve posted all the new information and instructions in […]
We’ve not had a blog update from the Digital Mitford in a while, but our project team has been busy! We’ve been working on grant writing and conference talks, not to mention semester and job activities, our energies diverted in many directions. We need a Coding Refresher Hangout, so project-team members, please check your e-mail […]
I knew there was a very big cache of Mitford letters I hadn’t yet looked at in Mitford’s home town of Reading, but as I worked tonight on the project of systematically identifying all the archives holding Mitford’s letters, I realized that the University of Reading is indeed in possession of 800 Mitford letters to […]
