Digital Yoknapatawpha

Digital Yoknapatawpha is a collaboration of 35 Faulkner scholars from 34 colleges and universities with a highly experienced digital humanities team at the University of Virginia. The project aims to complete the analysis of every location, character and event in Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha fictions—14 novels and 54 stories. As both resource and publication, the project is creating transformative pathways into and new critical insights about one of the nation’s central imaginative accomplishments. Faulkner’s quest to create modern art out of American history, his long engagement with major social issues like slavery and race, and with challenging experimental forms of narrating time and space provide a perfect site for constructing new modes of scholarly interpretation.
