Recovering Cavendish Transcribe-A-Thon

 

Transcribe Now!

Be a part of the creation of an open access, searchable, reader-friendly text of

Margaret Cavendish's Philosophical and Physical Opinions (1663)!

No experience necessary - simple transcription instructions are provided on the website!

Margaret Cavendish was a 17th century philosopher, who wrote numerous philosophical works, plays, poetry, and science שּׁĀction. While many of her works are available online in searchable editions, her important second edition of Philosophical and Physical Opinions has yet to be made available. The final text will be mounted in the Ed. Jekyll minimal editions platform for use by scholars, students, and the general public.

Online
Anyone may participate online. The website will be open on September 25th and remain open till the transcription is complete.
