The Victorian Women Writers Project started at Indiana University in 1995, under the leadership of Perry Willett, and had as its stated goal "to produce highly accurate transcriptions of works by British women writers of the 19th century." In 2007, encouraged by interest among the English department's faculty and graduate students, the Libraries and the English Department began exploring how to best reinvigorate this project, and over the summer of 2009 work has begun to upgrade the current contents of the VWWP and to add new texts. Currently plans are underway to involve English graduate student in the encoding process. This brown-bag conversation will share the changes to date and look ahead to the plans we are making to incorporate the VWWP in English graduate courses thereby establishing an ongoing dedication to this scholarly encoding project.
