Applications now open for WISE: What Is Scholarly Editing?

Friday 10 October 2014

WISE: What is Scholarly Editing? is a skills development course for research students and early career researchers from any humanities discipline who are interested in or embarking on editorial projects of their own. In a two-day workshop, offered in London (6-7 November), Durham (26-27 January) and Cardiff (13-14 April), WISE will equip participants with an understanding of the history and theory of scholarly editing, of what constitutes a critical edition, of the similarities and differences between different disciplines, periods and types of text, the use of digital technologies in the production and publication of editions, and of practical aspects of project management, planning and work flow. The emphasis throughout is on the implementation of skills working with actual examples through case studies and a 'hack day'. Participants will also gain hands-on experience of some of tools and platform available in digital editing.

Places on the workshops are free but limited to 25 places. Please see the programme for details on how to apply.

The Programme, which is supported by the AHRC, is a collaboration between the Institute of English Studies, the Institute of Historical Research, the Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research at Cardiff University and Durham University
