University of California, Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA 90095-9000)
Joseph E. Bristow (Project Director: March 2006 to October 2008)
The Oscar Wilde Archive: His Life, His Work, His Legend

A five-week seminar on Oscar Wilde giving fifteen college and university faculty access to the most extensive archive of Wilde materials in the world at the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library.

The proposed five-week Summer Seminar titled "The Oscar Wilde Archive: His Life, His Work, His Legend" aims to introduce fifteen college-level instructors to a broad selection of printed and unpublished sources held in one of the three principal collections belonging to the William Andrews Clark Library of the University of California, Los Angeles. The Clark Library's archive dedicated to the life and works of Oscar Wilde and his circle is the largest of its kind in the world (it holds each and every primary and full length secondary source relating to Wilde's productive professional life) and it provides an excellent resource for enabling seminar participants to acquire informed insights into how and why this distinguished Irish author remains the focus of much advanced research in the humanities.
