Hi! I'm Beatrice and I'm joining the project on a PhD placement for the next few months. You may remember me from the conjurers and magicians post -- theatre/performance history and Victorian history more generally are very much my areas, so I'm sure we all have a lot in common!
My main role on the project is to work with the data generated by your contributions to make sure that it's usable and makes sense, such as by making sure that the dates you transcribe are all formatted the same way. I'll also be working on linking up the plays and performances mentioned in the playbills to other versions, existing copies, further information on actors/scenery/texts, maybe even revival performances! Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see added that would improve your experience with the project and the site.
I'll be checking the topics on the forum here every day so don’t hesitate to get in contact with any ideas, issues or questions. Thanks for all your hard work so far!
