Today is the official launch of Pre-Raphaelites Online, a project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to unite UK and US collections of Pre-Raphaelite work. They aim to collaborate with museums and academic institutions in order to create an online platform which will enable more research into and promote public engagement with the Pre-Raphaelites.
The project is working closely with the Central Online Victorian Educator (COVE), along with several Museums and University-based research centres – including the Midlands-based Nineteenth-Century Centre at The University of Birmingham and Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (which houses over 3,000 works of Pre-Raphaelite art work).
The lead researchers for this project are: Dr. Rebecca Mitchell, University of Birmingham; Prof. Dino Felluga, Purdue University; Dr. Ana Parejo Vadillo, Birkbeck, University of London; and Dr. Paul Young, University of Exeter.
