Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership presents
Early Modern Texts: Digital Methods and Methodologies
University of Oxford
16 – 17 September 2013
The Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership, based at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, present a conference on early modern texts, with particular emphasis on digital research, and editing methods and methodologies in early modern studies. Papers cover topics including:
- Editing philosophies and practicalities
- Digital citation
- Hidden or developing research methodologies in the Humanities
- Bridging traditional and digital methods
- Comparative studies of different digital resources
- Research based on EEBO-TCP
- Digital tools to support early modern research
- Approaches to teaching methodology
The conference was an opportunity to explore the current state of early modern textual studies and editing, and to consider possibilities for the future. There was a particular focus on developing potential for collaborative work through scheduled networking sessions.
We are grateful to ProQuest for supporting registration and accommodation bursaries for postgraduate speakers, and to Apex CoVantage for funding refreshment breaks.
