The Prior-project: From Archive Boxes to a Research Community

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


In this paper, we present a DH research infrastructure which relies heavily on a combination of domain knowledge with information technology. The general goal is to develop tools to aid scholars in their interpretations and understanding of temporal logic. This in turn is based on an extensive digitisation of Arthur Prior’s Nachlass kept in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. The DH infrastructure in question is the Prior Virtual Lab (PVL). PVL was established in 2011 in order to provide researchers in the field of temporal logic easy access to the papers of Arthur Norman Prior (1914-1969), and officially launched together with Prior’s Nachlass at the Arthur Prior Centenary Conference at Balliol College, Oxford, in August 2014 (Arthur Prior Centenary Conference 2014; Albretsen et al. 2016a).
