Welcome to the progress update for the period 15 to 21 March 2014, which has seen transcribers make further excellent progress. 15,106 words of Bentham text have been transcribed this week, along with a further 6,046 words of TEI XML.
7,258 manuscripts have now been transcribed or partially transcribed, up 48 on this time last week. Of these transcripts, 6,927 (95%) are complete and have been locked after being checked by TB project staff.
The more detailed state of progress is as follows:
|Box||No. of manuscripts worked on||No. of manuscripts in box||Completion|
In further reading, the Director of the Bentham Project and General Editor of the Collected Works, Professor Philip Schofield, has written an entry for the Oxford University Press blog entitled ‘Gloomy terrors or the most intense pleasure?‘. This blog discusses the recently published Of Sexual Irregularities, and Other Writings on Sexual Morality, in which Bentham advances the first systematic defence of sexual liberty in modern European thought.
Thank you, as always, to everyone who has given their time so generously to Transcribe Bentham during the last week, it is as appreciated by us as ever.
