Digital Humanities Network: Schnitzler project launches transcription ‘sprint’

The Digital Humanities Network has launched a new transcription project related to the papers Arthur Schnitzler:
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 Explore Arthur Schnitzler’s literary texts online by transcribing his unpublished drafts and sketches.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: schnitzlerweb.mml.cam.ac.uk . 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’.
