Dickinson Electronic Archives 2

The Dickinson Electronic Archives was one of the first online archival collections. The original Dickinson Electronic Archives was launched in 1994 and was regularly updated until 2012 - the project's new archive collection is referred to as the Dickinson Electronic Archives 2. The site's founder, Martha Nell Smith, is both a leading scholar on Emily Dickinson and the founding director of the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities. Last featured in the 11-30-1999 Scout Report, the Dickinson Electronic Archives 2 continues to offer both archival material as well as up-to-date essays and resources related to the famous poet. In the Exhibitions section of this website, visitors will find find five thoughtfully curated collections that provide insight into different aspects of Dickinson's work and life. For example, one exhibit explores the recent release of 1859 daguerreotype that possibly depicts Emily Dickinson at approximately 30 years of age. In this photograph, Dickinson appears self-assured, challenging conceptions about the poet's personality. Another exhibit, Ravished Slates, allows visitors to explore Dickinson's later drafts and papers. In addition, visitors looking for further resources about Dickinson, including teaching resources and scholarly books, can check out the Bibliography and Links sections.
