Explorer David Livingstone's 1870 Field Diary and Select 1871 Letters: A Multispectral Critical Edition

Preparation for publication of on online critical edition of the 1870 Field Diary and select letters of David Livingstone (1813 - 73), the Scottish writer, abolitionist, missionary and explorer of Africa. (24 months)

We are applying for an NEH Scholarly Translations and Editions Grant in order to develop an online critical edition of the 1870 Field Diary and select 1871 letters of Dr. David Livingstone (1813-73), the Scottish writer, abolitionist, missionary, and explorer of Africa. This publication will conclude the already successful work of the peer-reviewed, NEH-funded Livingstone Spectral Imaging Project (2010-Present). Our new critical edition will feature a comprehensive scholarly apparatus that includes annotated transcriptions of Livingstone's 1870 diary and 1871 letters, a range of critical essays, and processed spectral images that clarify Livingstone's manuscripts and shed light on the history of their production and preservation. A user-friendly interface will allow scholars and the general public to study all our critical materials, while additional integration of new data into our existing archive will enable our work to be both interoperable and sustainable in the long term.
