Writings of Schnitzler

Transcribing Schnitzler

A transcription initiative, 19.10-16.11.2015

Can you read a doctor-writer’s handwriting? Explore Arthur Schnitzler’s literary texts online by transcribing his unpublished drafts and sketches. The ‘Transcribing Schnitzler ‘sprint’ aims to ‘source’ a public crowd, across different generations, which can transcribe a set of Schnitzler’s papers in four weeks.

The initiative will start on 19.10.15. Anybody who is interested in deciphering difficult handwriting or Schnitzler’s literary texts can join the conversation. Register at: http://schnitzlerweb.mml.cam.ac.uk/transcribe/. German language skills are needed to explore the website and Schnitzler’s creative workshop. A selection of the most successful transcriptions will be published on the website at the end of the ‘sprint’.

‘Transcribing Schnitzler’ is a participatory project organized by the British team of the Schnitzler Digital Critical Edition Project based at the Universities of Cambridge and Bristol, and University College London. The UK team is editing texts by Arthur Schnitzler from the period between 1904 and 1913. Unpublished sketches and drafts from Schnitzler’s dramatic texts Professor BernhardiDas weite Land and Die Gleitenden will be accessible online for four weeks.

 

Further information is also available with the Cambridge University Library.
