Launch of the Dylan Thomas Digital Collection, Online

  • Date:

    Friday May 14th

  • Online

  • On International Dylan Thomas Day (May 14, 2021), the Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin will join the global celebration of Welsh poet and dramatist Dylan Thomas, one of the most influential writers of the mid-twentieth century, by launching a new digital collection for study and research.

    Through a collaborative project jointly funded by Swansea University in Wales and the Ransom Center, with the generous support of the Dylan Thomas Trust, accessibility to the author’s archive will expand to include a digital collection of more than 6,000 items, opening the study of his literary works and creative process to a global audience.

    Read more about the collaboration in English or Welsh.

    With the May 14 launch, the collection will be available worldwide through the Ransom Center’s digital collections portal. These unique materials can then be examined using a suite of tools enabling researchers to engage in close comparison of material held by different institutions.
