RED Letter: The Newsletter of the Reading Experience Database

The RED Letter was a quarterly newsletter written by Rosalind Crone, Katie Halsey, and Mary Hammond between 2005 and 2009. Its purpose was to keep users of the database up-to-date with RED developments, and it also provided a forum for showcasing some of the more interesting evidence of reading that the RED team and its volunteers had found. In early 2010, the RED Letter was replaced with a blog, Reading Experiences, Reading Technologies, which maintains the RED Letter's earlier focus, but also aims to provide a broader survey of events and developments in the digital humanities and the history of reading generally. The back-issues of the RED Letter can be found below.
