I am delighted to be unofficially launching the project website with this post. The designer, Brendon George, has done a fantastic job of equipping the site with a variety of tools I’ll need to represent the project research. And in case you were wondering, the colour scheme (purple) has been chosen with the period in mind – purple, of course, being a highly popular colour in the Victorian era due to the availability of indigo dyes.
As you can probably tell, the site is still in a very preliminary stage (though be sure to check out the Publications and the Directory). In the coming months, the site will continue to develop and change as I continue to work with my graduate and undergraduate research assistants, so keep checking in. There’s a lot more to come!
