Description of my research
Since 2011 I have worked as an assistant for text editing in the ‘Oude Nederlandse’ programme. In this context, I have edited texts for various colleagues and transcribed manuscripts. I also contribute substantially to the Ceneton (Census Nederlands Toneel) project. Ceneton, coordinated by Dr. A.J.E. Harmsen, contains transcriptions of Early Modern Dutch theater texts, in reliable electronic editions. The site is frequently consulted by researchers. Of the 820 plays on the website, I have contributed more than three hundred. I have also contributed to the Heinsius Collection project and to the website Heldinnenbrieven (edited by Dr. O. van Marion). I am also acting manager of the Education Library.
