TEXTUAL EDITING: TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY PRACTICE: WORKSHOP 2: UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH

A series of workshops for doctoral students in literary studies

WORKSHOP 2:

UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH, WEDNESDAY 6 APRIL 2016

The Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities and the Universities’ Committee for Scottish Literature would like to announce the second of a series of four workshops designed to provide doctoral students of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature with the knowledge and skills required for the scholarly editing of texts from the period.

Following the inaugural session at Stirling on 17 February, the Edinburgh workshop will address the problems of textual variation and the technologies available to deal with it. Students will be introduced to the identification of variants between manuscript and different print editions, including the use of Optical Character Recognition and electronic collation in the comparison of printed editions; to digital techniques for the attribution of authorship; and to TEI (Text Encoding Initiative), the standard for the representation of texts in digital form. Throughout, the experience gained in the production of the New Edinburgh Edition of the Works of Robert Louis Stevenson will be used as a reference point. Computer facilities will be available so that students can gain hands-on experience of some of the technologies discussed. See Programme below.

Doctoral students of literary studies from any Scottish university who book a place on any workshop will have second-class rail fare from their home university to the venue reimbursed. Lunch is also included. Previous attendance at the Stirling workshop is not a prerequisite for participating in this one. Please book your place on this workshop by emailing Bob Irvine at r.p.irvine@ed.ac.uk.
