Editing Now: Early Modern Performance and Modern Textual Scholarship brings together theatre historians, literary scholars, stylometrists, actors, librarians, manuscript specialists, and musicologists, as well as editors working on the AHRC-funded projects John Ford and The Complete Works of James Shirley, 1596-1666.
The workshop will look at current editorial projects in the field of early modern literature, methods of establishing authorship and a writer’s canon, and the way in which large-scale editorial endeavours are funded and organized. The workshop will also seek to establish a multi-disciplinary, cross-period research network on editorial practices and traditions, which will be of great interest for members of the Institute for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, and anyone with a general interest in editing.
