La Princesse de Clèves (The Princess of Clèves) by Marie-Madeleine de Lafayette: A Digital Critical Edition of a 17th-Century French Novel

Preparation of a digital critical edition and translation of the 17th-century French novel La Princesse de Clèves by Marie-Madeleine de Lafayette.

Questioning purported “universal theories of digital technologies,” a key aim of this project is to present a model for North American DH [digital humanities] projects, useful to graduate and scholarly audiences, but above all accessible to undergraduates, that focuses on non-Anglophone materials, while furthering scholarly understanding of a classic early modern text. In creating a digital platform for investigating the seventeenth-century novel, La Princesse de Clèves, I offer a liberal arts approach to combining modern language and DH methods by active engagement pedagogies to realize a richer, more global, trans-disciplinary and trans-linguistic DH experience. The approach to the interactive Princesse de Clèves publication will enable viewers to observe how cultural and linguistic differences shape the kinds of questions DH practitioners pose, as well as the methods and materials they draw from.
