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.

Proposers accepted from this open call will join some thirty invited conference participants, drawn from scholarly editing, digital humanities, and the 'citizen scholar' movement. Confirmed participants are Barbara Bordalejo, Susan Brown, Ben Brumfield, Gabriel Egan, Paul Eggert, Paul Flemons, Alex Gil, James Ginther, Tuomas Heikkilä, Fotis Jannidis, Laura Mandell, Murray McGillivray, Allison Muri, Brent Nelson, Catherine Nygren, Dan O'Donnell, Roger Osbourne, Wendy Phillips-Rodriguez, Elena Pierazzo, Ken Price, Peter Robinson, Geoffrey Rockwell, Peter Shillingsburg, Ray Siemens, Michael Eberle-Sinatra, Joshua Sosin, Melissa Terras, Edward Vanhoutte, and Joris van Zundert (to be confirmed: Hans Gabler and Jerome McGann). The conference will be preceded by a one-day workshop on collaborative editing systems.
