Contribute to the READ-IT project

Welcome to the public contribution portal for the READ-IT project! Here you can contribute any of the following types of data to the project:

  • text or image files, written or printed information you have found about the experiences of reading of people through history from c.1700 to the present day;
  • image files, visual representations of reading you have found in painting, sculpture, photography, illustrations, from c.1700 to the present day etc.
  • text, image, audio and video files, to contribute and share your own responses to reading.

We accept both 'found content', as records of reading you have found, as well as 'user-generated content', your own records or responses to your reading.
