Estonian writers gathered in an online dictionary

04.03.2024 14:20

University of Tartu Department of Literature and Theater Studies of the Institute of Cultural Research introduces Estonian Writers' Online Dictionary (EWOD), that brings together overviews about hundreds of Estonian writers, including playwrights. The editors-in-chief are Jüri Talvet and Arne Merilai, the managing editor is Sven Vabar.

EWOD aims at gathering and organizing the existing bibliographical data about Estonian literature and its academic and critical reception in foreign languages. EWOD's foremost purpose is to grant international literary, cultural and research communities a better access to information about Estonian literature.

In addition, EWOD comprises the basic data about Estonian writers and their work in the Estonian language. EWOD thus also complements the data provided by the earlier vernacular literary dictionaries that are rapidly getting out of date.

All current data provided by the website is complemented in the course of ongoing work.
