The Quill Project


The Quill Project studies the history of negotiated texts. It is a research project based at Pembroke College, Oxford.

Using the records of the processes that have created constitutions, treaties, or legislation, it offers a recreation of the contexts within which decisions were made, visualizations allow the process of negotiation to be understood and explored, and commentary on specific points of interest.

Our flagship project examines the work of the 1787 Constitutional Convention that created the Constitution of the United States.
