Digital editing workshop

Thursday 18 November 2010, Institute of Historical Research, University of London

The workshop, organised with funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of the Early English Laws project, will discuss the digital editing of a range of texts, from the early middle ages to the 19th century. It will examine some of the approaches and tools that are available to editors of digital texts and the possibilities for collaborative editing online. It will suggest practical solutions to some of the challenges faced by editors in the digital age, and explore how ‘editions’ might evolve in the age of crowd-sourcing and deep linking of data.
