This site was created by Amanda Visconti, but this project wouldn't be possible without the support and generosity of many people (drawing by Rob Berry of the wonderful Ulysses Seen comic):
You're already contributing to the site just by being here, and even more so when you add, tag, and rate annotations on the text—thank you! This site depends on its community of readers and the annotations they create and share.

- Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC) Doctoral Fellowship (2013-2014)
- University of Maryland English Department Summer Fellowship (2014)
- University of Maryland University Fellowship (2010-2013)
- Funding as a graduate research assistant and course instructor from the University of Maryland English Department (Summer 2011 and Winter 2012), iSchool (2010-2011), Digital Cultures and Creativity Honors College (Fall 2012), and MITH (Summer 2011-Winter 2013, Fall 2013-Spring 2014).
This site builds off the digital plaintext transcription of the 1922 first printing of Ulysses, transcribed by Matthew Kochis and Patrick Belk with the Modernist Versions Project (MVP) and offered for public reuse by the MVP under a CC BY SA license. I've added transcription-error corrections, regex formatting replacements, and HTML/CSS for important typographical choices used in the 1922 first printing of the novel (as verified against the Modernist Versions Project's digital images of the printing). You can read a full log of my corrections and changes on this page about the text of the novel, or grab the text for your own use (under CC BY SA requirements) in this repository.
Joyce scholars Hans Walter Gabler and Ronan Crowley have also been extremely helpful via conversations about improving textual reliability and future options for versioning on the site.
- Michael Widner with Stanford's Lacuna Stories for code discussions and vital code that fully brings Annotator.js into Drupal
- The Drupal Annotation and Annotator modules
- Many Drupal modules/contributors (full provenance will be tracked on the Readme.md of this project's GitHub repo)
- Custom child theme built off the Drupal Bootstrap theme framework with Kalatheme
- Panoply, Radix, Panels
- Flat UI kit for some of the color palette
- The three large images at the start of the front page were remixed by me from a variety of CC-BY images: metal funnel (by IconEden), highlighter (by PSDgraphics.com), the open book and colored talk bubbles (both by Freepik.com), and from Clker.com, the: rating thumb, gears (1, 2), A-Z, star, calendar, warning, and upvote icons.
