of national biography are a long-established and significant genre of
biographical and historical writing, existing in many forms across the globe.
This book brings together practitioners from around the English-speaking
world to reflect on national biographical dictionary projects' recent
cultural journeys, and the challenges presented to them by such developments
as the transition to a digital environment, a new alertness to the need to
represent diversity, and the rise of transnationalism. Exploring their paths
forward, the chapters of this book collectively make a powerful argument for
the continued value and importance of large-scale collaborative biographical
dictionary research.
