Session Description:

This panel explores the resistance of editors to explore digital editions. Questions posed: Do scholarly protocols deliberately resist computational methodologies? Or are we still in a liminal period where print predominates for lack of training in the new technology? Does the problem lie with a failure to encourage digital research by younger scholars?


Subjects:

  • General Literature – Electronic Technology (Teaching, Research, and Theory)

  • The Profession – Publishing and Editing
