Research in the arts and humanities has for some time depended on electronic support and resources, from the computers on which researchers store their data and compose their thoughts, to the databases and online content from which much primary and secondary material is derived. Until recently, however, digital tools could not truly be said to have transformed the methods and the products of research in arts and humanities disciplines. By contrast, we are now witnessing a new generation of 'born digital' scholarly research publications that are beginning to harness the special advantages and opportunities afforded by the digital context.
In this half-day conference, leading scholars from a range of fields within the arts and humanities will present papers and lead discussion on new developments in the field of digital editing, in music, history, philosophy, and literature. Participants are encouraged to bring their own experiences as editors and/or users of editions to the meeting, and to contribute to the closing round table discussion.
Speakers will include: Andrew Webber (German and Dutch, Cambridge), John Rink (Music, Cambridge), Eleanor Robson (Cambridge, HPS), Jane Winters (Institute of Historical Research), and Andrew Zurcher (Cambridge, English).
