Scholarly Editing in the 21st Century
The 18 international section editors at Literature Compass spanning medieval to contemporary literatures believe that this collection Scholarly Editing in the Twenty-first Century is essential reading for the field. It reviews the state of knowledge and opinion and articulates the positions of some of the leading editors of our time and confronts key issues in digital humanities as well as scholarly editing. We recommend Scholarly Editing in the Twenty-first Century to individual editors, editorial boards and syndics, workshops, courses, and other pedagogical venues.
