Literature in Glasgow

  • Glasgow's Literary Bonds - Offers a list and contextualised information on approximately 200 literary societies that were running in Glasgow during the long nineteenth century (here defined as 1800 to 1914).
  • Scottish Corpus Of Texts & Speech - The Scottish Corpora project has created large electronic corpora of written and spoken texts for the languages of Scotland. The Scottish Corpus of Texts & Speech (SCOTS) has been online since November 2004, and, after a number of updates and additions, has reached a total of nearly 4.6 million words of text, with audio recordings to accompany many of the spoken texts.
  • The Corpus of Modern Scottish Writing - An electronic corpus of written and printed texts from the period 1700-1945, complementing the Helsinki Corpus of Older Scots (1450-1700) and the Scottish Corpus of Texts & Speech (1945-present day). CMSW contains over 350 documents, containing approximately 5.5 million words of text overall.
    • Life in Old Letters - a collection of letters extracted from the corpus by Jenny Bann and used to illustrate 300 hundred years of Glasgow and local history.
    • Burns Kilmarnock Edition - the digitised edition of Robert Burns’ Poems, chiefly in the Scottish dialect.
    • Thomas Crawford's Diary - a diary by Thomas Crawford, kept during his emigration by sea from Scotland to Australia in 1825, and presented here in blog format by Jenny Bann.
  • Editing Robert Burns for the 21st Century - Based at The Centre for Robert Burns Studies at the University of Glasgow, we commenced work on the new multi-volume edition following an award of £1.1 million by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in 2011.
