MANNHEIM, Germany – November 14, 2011 – The Institut für Deutsche Sprache is announcing the launch of Umberto Eco Wiki, an online collaborative resource to the award-winning, best-selling fiction and nonfiction of Umberto Eco:
Readers and academics with annotations, comments or questions on the plot, themes, or ideas in The Prague Cemetery and other Eco works are encouraged to add them directly to the site, with the goal of creating a thorough and useful resource to Eco’s writing, both for casual readers and academics in the fields of literature, history and linguistics. The wiki is in English and German. Want resources in other languages? Add them!
The project is headed by Erik Ketzan, a researcher at the Institut für Deutsche Sprache who is Co-architect of Pynchonwiki.com, which to date has had 300+ contributors, 6000+ entries, and now contains over 600,000 words of high-quality literary commentary and annotation.
