Sterne Digital Library: Cambridge 2020

The Sterne Digital Library Project will be hosting a one-day project launch conference in Cambridge:


Form, Media, Digitisation: Eighteenth-Century Adaptation and Sterneana, 1700-1860


This event will showcase the digitisation of Laurence Sterne works and Sterneana hosted by Cambridge Digital Library. It will also bring together scholars working on Sterne, on eighteenth-century literature more widely, on adaptation, on digital media, and in the digital humanities. Registration is free, and everyone is welcome to give a paper and to attend as a non-speaking delegate.

A journal special issue will also be produced based on the conference theme, which welcomes abstracts based on papers given and from contributors unable to attend. 

The initial conference date (20th March 2020) has been postponed due to the current uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus. A new date will be circulated in due course.
