University College London (UCL) was established in 1826 as the original University of London, and is England’s third oldest university. UCL’s work in tranScriptorium will be led by the Bentham Project. Founded in 1959 and based within the top Research Assessment-Exercise-rated Faculty of Laws, the Bentham Project’s primary purpose is to produce the new scholarly edition of The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham. The Bentham Project is recognised as a British Academy Research Project, and has been funded in its work by, amongst others, the British Academy, the Wellcome Trust, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Economic and Social Research Council, and the Leverhulme Trust. Also part of the UCL team will be the Centre for Digital Humanities which, using new technologies seeks to bring together work done both across UCL’s departments and centres, and outside UCL at museums, galleries, libraries and archives, to further humanities research. Projects involving UCLDH staff include the Catalogue of English Literary Manuscripts, Digital Humanities Open Educational Resources, QRator, TEI by Example, Transcribe Bentham, and the forthcoming Textal.
