'The French Book Trade in Enlightenment Europe (FBTEE) Database'
Dr Mark Curran (QMUL)

Dr. Curran will give a short introduction to the AHRC funded resource The
French Book Trade in Enlightenment Europe (FBTEE) database
(http://chop.leeds.ac.uk/stn/interface), as well as his (pre-circulated)
major new /Historical Journal /article 'Beyond the Forbidden Best-Sellers of
pre-Revolutionary France'. Retracing Robert Darnton's steps through the
famous Neuchâtel archives he will ask whether non-existent books, never
sent to atypical booksellers cause revolutions? This brief primer will set
up a broader, inclusive, group discussion of a series of DH questions that
have issued from, by are from unique to, the FBTEE database project. These
may include:

·         The sometimes strained relationship between print and digital
outputs in DH projects

·         Trade-offs between scholarly granularity and accessibility

·         'Born digital' resources and their relationship to manuscript
sources

·         Future DH pathways in bibliography, bibliometrics and book
history
