Years of extensive research – bibliographic searches, library visits, archival research, and visits to private individuals on five continents – continues to find and obtain the material for several edited collections on Baudrillard’s writings, interviews, and photographs. The materials for the next nine collections are now finalized and include pieces that are little known, unknown, rare, untranslated, difficult to obtain, expensive to obtain, or are unique to my Baudrillard collection. Book contracts have been agreed with Edinburgh University Press, Seagull Books, Presses Universitaires de France, and Delere Press. I am now actively compiling the following nine collections for publication from 2019 onwards:
Smith RG ed. (2019) Jean Baudrillard: The Missing Pieces, Uncollected Writings and Photographs (Edinburgh University Press)
Smith RG & Turner C eds. (2019 onwards) Jean Baudrillard: Untranslated German Interviews (Seagull Books). 3 volumes.
Smith RG & Turner C eds. (2019 onwards) Jean Baudrillard: Untranslated French Interviews (Seagull Books). 3 volumes.
Smith RG ed. (2019) Jean Baudrillard: Penser à voix haute, entretiens 1968–2008 [Jean Baudrillard: Thinking Aloud, 1968–2008] (‘Perspectives critiques’ Presses Universitaires de France)
