David Sorenson and Brent Kinser came to Baylor in the fall of 2011 to introduce their plans to build a new platform for interconnected scholarly editions.  They called it the Victorian Lives and Letters Consortium, and their intention was to assemble a group of “teachers, scholars, programmers, librarians, students, and enthusiasts devoted to the challenge of creating interactive digital archives of life-writing extending from the coronation of Queen Victoria to the outbreak of World War I.” Four years later, they are returning to provide an update on the progress of the VLLC and to discuss the myriad ways that their work attends to the challenges and opportunities of scholarship in the digital era in a talk entitled “The Victorian Lives and Letters Consortium; or, Growth of a Digital Humanities Project.”
