full name / name of organization: 
Megan Walsh and William Huntting Howell

In recent years, a number of overlooked and forgotten texts have made their way to modern readers through new scholarly editions. This roundtable discussion hopes to address the following questions: How do new editions of marginalized texts come to be? What is at stake in recuperating and reissuing neglected works? How can editors of these texts best address the needs of contemporary audiences—including undergraduates, graduate students, instructors, and the broader reading public?
