The project

ENCCRE, the first Digital, Collaborative and Critical Edition of the Encyclopædia of Diderot and D’Alembert (1751-1772) has developed a digital platform through which its 130 researchers are progressively carrying out the critical edition of the articles in the 17 text-volumes. The project now starts working on the design of a collaborative digital environment that will enable the critical edition of the 11 volumes of plates and the publication of the results on the edition’s consultation interface, freely accessible at http://enccre.academie-sciences.fr.
ENCCRE project is based on ambitious scientific objectives, which include detailed descriptions of the 2,579 plates and corresponding textual explanations, the possibility of linking these textual and iconographic elements, as well as the ability to annotate and comment on the whole at several scales. In addition to the functionalities enabling the team to carry out these description, annotation and presentation operations, the project provides innovative browsing and search functionalities on the consultation interface, offering everyone new tools for exploring and analyzing the corpus. It also provides for a publication chain integrating the structured data repository (in XML-TEI for texts and in a IIIF compatible format for images) on Huma-Num OAI-PMH warehouses.
The contributions of this project are multiple and transversal: in the history of science, technology and ideas, for its capacity to give back its place to illustration; in digital humanities, on the one hand, for its contribution to the issue of digital environments for collaborative editing and research on textual and iconographic data, and on the other hand, for its capacity to initiate strong interactions with data sciences for the design of new analysis methods of illustrated corpora.
