Zora Neale Hurston Digital Archive

Zora Neale Hurston Digital Archive

Launched in 2006 by Anna Lillios, Mark L. Kamrath, and J.D. Applen, the Zora Neale Hurston Digital Archive has two goals. Its primary purpose is to provide an academic site that will provide a repository of biographical, historical, critical, and other contextual materials related to Hurston’s life and work. The site also seeks to make available various teaching resources so that both teachers and students can more fully appreciate the cultural and literary richness of Hurston’s numerous writings. With time and funding, we hope to also develop a digital edition of Hurston’s writings. A secondary goal of the site is to work closely with the city of Eatonville, Florida, The Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community, and other interested parties in documenting Hurston’s accomplishments both as a regional ethnographer and anthropologist and one of the world’s most talented African–American women writers.

Charles Brockden Brown Electronic Archive and Scholarly Edition

Charles Brockden Brown Electronic Archive and Scholarly Edition

The Charles Brockden Brown Electronic Archive and Scholarly Edition is a project dedicated to publishing the uncollected writings of Charles Brockden Brown. Our edition builds on, supplements, and contextualizes the Bicentennial Edition of The Novels and Related Works, published between 1977 and 1987 under the general editorship of Sydney J. Krause and S. W. Reid. Consisting of six volumes and containing the novels Wieland (1977), Arthur Mervyn (1980), Ormond (1983), Edgar Huntly (1984), Clara Howard and Jane Talbot (1986), and the dialogue Alcuin (1987), the Bicentennial Edition became a landmark in modern Brown scholarship. Paperback editions of individual novels based on the Kent State University Press texts have since been published for classroom use, and Sydney J. Krause edited a one-volume edition of three novels for the Library of America. This has done much to re-establish Brown as an important novelist in the American canon. The Bicentennial Edition, however, constitutes no more than half of Brown’s writings; not represented are (at present count) 546 printed texts and 183 letters. This count includes his book, theater and music reviews, philosophical essays, reflections on law, religion, nationhood, geography, history, literature, political economy, medicine, science, and sexuality, as well as his short fiction, letters, and poetry. (Only letters and poems survive in manuscript form.)
