About Dr Mark Byron

Dr Byron's research interests focus upon difficult modernist texts - often with unruly manuscript archives - and the methods required to produce comprehensive and coherent scholarly editions of such texts. In July 2006 he began an ARC Discovery Postdoctoral Fellowship: His project aims to develop a suitable electronic editorial apparatus and corresponding methodology to account for Samuel Beckett's 1953 novel Watt and its 980-page manuscript, and to produce a full electronic edition. In the course of this research, he has held a visiting research fellowship at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University in January-February 2006, and he will hold a visiting research fellowship at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin in October-December 2006.
