Editing Now: Early Modern Performance and Modern Textual Scholarship

19th September 2012, 10:00 to 21st September 2012, 13:00, Department of English Studies, Hallgarth House

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.

Participants include:

  • Professor Robert Cummings, University of Glasgow
  • Dr Philip West, Oxford University
  • Dr Andrew Ashbee, Musica Britannica
  • Stephen Tabor, Huntington Library, California
  • Sonia Ritter, formerly RSC and Globe
  • Dr Marcus Dahl, School of Advanced Study, London
  • Professor Marina Tarlinskaya, University of Washington
  • Dr John Lavagnino, King’s College, London
  • Sir Brian Vickers FBA, Institute of English Studies, London

The full programme is available for download here.
