… is busy editing Arthur Schnitzler’ correspondence with fellow writers.

With this project, Martin continues his series of scholarly editions of texts from the Vienna literary scene around 1900, which has hitherto focused on two figures of international fame: Arthur Schnitzler and Hermann Bahr. His latest publication was the hybrid edition of the exchange between Schnitzler and Bahr (2018). In retrospect, this shows itself as the first step of his current project at the ACDH-CH. Other publications include a critical edition of Schnitzler’s novellette Die Toten schweigen (2016), the correspondence between Bahr and Arno Holz (2015) and a directory listing more than 5000 of Hermann Bahr's texts (2014).

Martin studied German literature and trained as an art teacher. He gained his PhD in philosophy at the university of Vienna with a thesis titled "On children’s entitlement to beat their parents (France 1748–1766)". Even though he had already chosen computer science over latin in high school and has a track record of actually liking LaTeX, his dedication to digital editing has been shaped only recently by the everyday necessities and problems of dealing with texts and their proper representation.
