She used to be a sailing instructor, but then she moved to the prairies, and and now she likes to knit.

Social, Digital, Scholarly Editing conference, Saskatoon, 11-13 July 2013

The Social, Digital, Scholarly Editing
conference will be held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, from 11-13
July 2013
. This conference comes at a critical inflection point in the
transformation of scholarly editing caused by the two massive shifts of
the digital revolution: the movement of all data into digital form and
the creation of new modes of collaboration. For the first: the creation
of massive amounts of data in digital form has already transformed the
basic materials of scholarly editing, while digital tools offer new
methods for exploration and publication. For the second: where scholarly
editing in the past has been typically the work of a single dedicated
scholar, the development of social media opens up the possibilities of
collaborative work across whole communities. These changes affect every
aspect of scholarly editing. This conference will explore the
theoretical, practical, and social implications of these changes.

Universities are among the few institutions that can trace their history to the Middle Ages. One key reason is their ability to adapt to changing internal and external forces.
