place on August 13, 2007. Doctoral students are
given the opportunity to share their
work-in-progress with invited senior researchers
and with the other student participants in an

good opportunity to meet other doctoral students.

Applications to the doctoral forum should consist of the following:
• Thesis Description: A thesis description of
1,200-1,500 words, not including figures,
bibliography, and/or appendix of instruments. The
description should outline the research problem
and theoretical framework, suggested methods, a
description of your progress as well as a work
plan for the future. Include in your description
problems that you have come across and would like
to discuss in the Doctoral Forum.
• Curriculum Vitae: A short description of
earlier experiences of relevance for the Doctoral Forum.
Submissions should be submitted electronically,
as MS Word documents or PDF files, by e-mail to

         Subject: London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship, 22 March

All those within range of London are cordially invited to the London
Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship, to take place 22 March, 5.30
pm, in room NG15, Senate House, Malet Street (just behind the British
Museum). The Seminar leader is Dr Mary Hammond (Open University),
whose topic is "The Reading Experience Database 1800-1945: New Directions".

The Reading Experience Database (RED) is ten years old. Currently
holding around 6,000 records of the reading experiences and practices
of British subjects - including perhaps the largest single collection
of experiences from the 'long' eighteenth century - it has recently
been awarded a major AHRC grant which will speed up its growth and
enable it to be placed live on the web for the first time. This
seminar explores the ways in which electronically-available data on
reading drawn from a wide range of sources might augment studies of
literature and the material book.

Mary Hammond is Lecturer in Literature and Book History at the Open
University. She is the author of Reading, Publishing and the
Formation of Literary Taste in England 1880-1914 (Ashgate, 2006) and
a number of articles on the literature, reception and publishing
pratices of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She is also
co-editor of Publishing in the First World War (Palgrave, 2007),
Books Without Borders: the International Dimension in Print Culture
and South Asian Perspectives on Book History from Palm Leaf to Print
(Palgrave, 2007), and Project Supervisor for the Reading Experience
Database 1800-1914.

All are welcome. Refreshments are provided.
