As the 2011 Nancy Keesing Fellow, I presented a work-in-progress talk at the Mitchell Library Hail Fellows Evening earlier in 2012. The video of that presentation is now available. The presentation provides a general description of the approach I am taking towards an electronic edition of Such is Life. Updates to that approach will be posted here in 2013.
I am a Lecturer in English and Writing at James Cook University, Cairns: https://research.jcu.edu.au/portfolio/roger.osborne/
I am co-editor of the Cambridge Edition of Joseph Conrad’s Under Western Eyes (published 10 October 2013), and editor of the Joseph Furphy Digital Archive. My edition of Joseph Conrad’s Nostromo is scheduled for publication in 2020.
I have published widely in the field of book history, and with David Carter, published Australian Books and Authors in the American Marketplace, 1840s–1940s in 2018, the first of two volumes.
This blog presents a record of my plans, successes, failures, and changes in direction.
