We’re delighted to announce a new project, ReScript, which aims to support historians in the collaborative editing of historical texts online. The project will develop an editing platform which will support both digital and print publication, and encourage editors to think about what we mean by an ‘edition’ in the digital age. ReScript will focus initially on four texts, selected to represent the main approaches to historical editing: Aubrey’s Brief Lives, Clarendon’s History of the Rebellion, the St. Botolph Aldgate Parish Clerk’s Memorandum Books and Foster’s Alumni Oxonienses. For the last of these, we will be experimenting with options for producing crowd-sourced editions.
You can find out more about the project from our website, or at our Digital Editing Workshop on 18 November.
