Beckett Digital Manuscript Project (BDMP)

A collaboration between the Centre for Manuscript Genetics (University of Antwerp), the Beckett International Foundation (University of Reading) and the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center (University of Texas at Austin) will see a digital archive of Beckett’s works as well as a series of print volumes that analyse “the genesis of the texts contained in the corresponding electronic environment”.

The purpose of the Beckett Digital Manuscript Project is to reunite the manuscripts of Samuel Beckett’s works in a digital way, and to facilitate genetic research: the project brings together digital facsimiles of documents that are now preserved in different holding libraries, and adds transcriptions of Beckett’s manuscripts, tools for bilingual and genetic version comparison, and a search engine. The project also enhances the preservation of Beckett’s manuscripts.
