Is there a Future for the Standard Edition?
Session 14120, NeMLA 2014 Convention, Harrisburg PA, April 3-6, 2014
Calling all editors of scholarly 'Works' editions, and anyone interested in the value and possibilities of such projects under the regime of digitalization and amid shrinking university press budgets. Is the author-based, multi-volume, hard-copy standard edition (becoming) a thing of the past? If so, what(if anything) has been lost? What possibilities exist for perpetuating functions we value on new platforms? What models exist for hybrid paper/digital editions? Are we adequately training tomorrow's editors?
