The Orlando Project: An Integrated History of Women's Writing in the British Isles


‘The Orlando Project is creating a textbase of research on women's history and literary history in the British Isles. Our project differs from other TEI-based projects in that we are using SGML to tag text that 1) does not currently exist, 2) is notable for its subject matter as well as its structure, and 3) is critical and interpretive in nature.’

– Sharon Balazs, 16 Jul 2000
