The website “Marcel Proust’s World War I Letters,” featuring a selection of letters from the years 1914-1918, is the first phase of Corr-Proust, a new digital edition of French novelist Marcel Proust’s correspondence. Caroline Szylowicz (Kolb-Proust Librarian and Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts, RBML) and François Proulx (Assistant Professor, Department of French and Italian) present the website and discuss the next phases of this long-term digital humanities project, a collaboration between the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Université Grenoble Alpes, and the Institut des textes et manuscrits modernes (Paris).
