Primary research focus: How technology can alter or enhance the individual, real-time experience of reading.

Potential area(s) of collaboration: I want to learn what the requirements will be, in terms of skills, labor, and infrastructure, to create a full-scale, robustly-featured, mobile-friendly digital edition of Marcel Proust's 'A la Recherche du temps perdu.' I want to gain the skills I need to plan and execute the project, what skills I will need in others, what kinds of funding I need to seek out, how to seek it.
