Conceptualizing and Creating a Digital Edition

June 10 8:00 am June 14 5:00 pm PDT

Are you looking for a workshop environment to begin planning your edition? Join eLaboratories at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute for the course “Conceptualizing and Creating a Digital Edition.”

This course will explore all aspects of conceptualizing, planning for, and creating a digital edition. It provides a basic introduction to the various types of digital editions, the practice of editing in the digital age, and a survey of the many digital tools available to serve project goals. Approaching a digital edition means taking time to think about how end-users will want to work with a particular edition. Beginning with the research and analytical needs of end-users in mind, editors are better able to develop effective editorial strategies that will result in a dynamic, useful, and usable, digital edition. In this course, participants will engage in hands-on learning and group discussions related to project conceptualization, editorial policies and processes, and the selection and use of digital tools that can serve the needs of researchers and other end-users. Participants will bring a few sample materials they are working with. We will use these in a class project—creating a digital edition over the course of the week using skills learned in each session. The goal is for participants to return to their home institutions ready and able to build upon, enhance, and transform these initial ideas into robust digital editions.

This course is jointly sponsored by eLaboratories and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, and will be taught collaboratively by eLabs course guides Christopher Ohge, Victoria Sciancalepore and Serenity Sutherland, and eLabs Managing Director Katie Blizzard. This course may be combined with “Open-Assembly Teaching, Making, and Publishing: COVE Editions and Studio.”
