News from Local Time Machine Project

Mnemosine – a Digital Library for Odd and Forgotten Literary Texts (1868-1939)

We already featured this highly interesting Local Time Machine Project in one of our earlier #LTMThursday episodes, interviewing project manager Maria Dolores Romero López from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She opened up about the main focus of the research initiative called “Mnemosine” aiming at selecting, categorizing and making available forgotten literary texts of Silver Age Spain. Now we can add some further updates about this research initiative – see below.

Project Updates: Mnemosine Project

Seminar on Feminism/s in the Silver Age

The LOEP research group of the Universidad Complutense Madrid wants to give visibility to two of the collections in the Mnemosine Digital Library: Intellectual Women and Women Translators of the Silver Age. With this purpose the project team will celebrate an International Seminar on “Feminism/s in the Silver Age: identities, translations and reflections” on September 26 and 27 at the Complutense University of Madrid.

Datasets were uploaded

All Local Time Machine Projects are warmly invited to share their data within the Local Time Machine Environment, as did the managers of the Mnemosine Project, enriching Madrid Time Machine with data. You can find the link to the public collection in Clavy at the bottom of the project entry.

Call for Participation

Spain is about to be member of two large European infrastructures, CLARIN and DARIAH, which would open a more European outreach for the Mnemosine project hoping to broaden its horizon by exposing its dataset in Europe.
The project managers are looking for individuals, groups or institutions to share data, projects, seminars, articles and books. Topics are rare books, forgotten authors, women writers in Europe, feminism in translation, literary collections, mass literature.
