In coming decades, “all the scholarly resources we use—all the editions, every print book, every manuscript—are going to be remade in digital form” (Peter Robinson). But what form exactly? After more than two decades of work, have we yet produced an electronic scholarly edition that works as well as a print edition and satisfies all of its users?
Papers at the 2012 book:logic Symposium, “Text Editing and Digital Culture,” investigated the promises and pitfalls of digital textuality, the changing role of the textual editor, and the intersections of textual studies and digital technologies within different cultures and literary traditions.
