This free public workshop will present new findings about Richardson's life, letters, fiction, and non-fiction. There will be presentations on the implications of publishing a new Pilgrimage, the significance of Richardson's epistolary networks, and the Dorothy Richardson project's developing methodology.
Over the last five years the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded Dorothy Richardson Editions Project has been preparing new editions of Richardson's letters and fictions. The first volumes of a new edition of her long novel Pilgrimage and of her correspondence are forthcoming with Oxford University Press in 2020.
The preparatory work for the edition has involved new archival work, intensive study of Richardson's manuscripts and drafts, and wide-ranging discussions with other editors of modernist texts.
Following the AHRC workshops 2016-17 on the New Modernist Editing and the conference held at Queen Mary University of London in July 2017 on 'Modernism and Textual Scholarship', the workshop will discuss the Richardson project's contribution to new developments in the theory and practice of editing modernist texts.
