Bibliography: Primary Works and Secondary Studies
This bibliography compiles primary works and secondary studies related to One More Voice and uses the following structure:
- Original works generally date to the nineteenth century and encompass both manuscript and print sources. The individuals and groups taken up by One More Voice serve as either authors of or contributors to such works.
- Works of folklore generally date to the nineteenth century and encompass both manuscript and print sources. These works are rarely “authored” by the individuals and groups taken up by One More Voice and should be approached with exceptional critical caution. Nonetheless, the works together serve as an important, if highly mediated, repository of relevant voices. This subsection also includes a small selection of Victorian scholarship on folklore.
- Historical sources generally date to the nineteenth century and encompass both manuscript and print sources. These sources provide historical context for the individuals and groups whose work is published and/or documented by One More Voice.
- Studies of individuals and groups and regional studies are modern critical works that, respectively, focus on the individuals and groups taken up by One More Voice or discuss relevant regional contexts.
- Critical and theoretical studies engage broad and/or abstract questions relevant to the development of One More Voice.
- Digital projects and archives are initiatives whose objectives and methodologies bear affinity to those of One More Voice.
- Site illustrations comprise images used to illustrate the One More Voice project site.
The bibliography is by no means exhaustive and, indeed, might best be described as incomplete. To suggest additional sources, please email us. Users may also want to consult Livingstone Online’s general, but more comprehensive bibliography.
