Transformational Change: A Symposium on Ethical Approaches to Digital Scholarly Editing

April 16 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm


The Digital Humanities Research Workshop is pleased to host an afternoon symposium on the topic of “Transformational Change” with respect to the ethical obligations and possibilities presented by digital scholarly editing in a variety of fields. Three invited guest speakers will discuss their work leading innovative editorial projects in a variety of fields, whether in the classroom, working with community organizations, or within an independent academic journal. Our aim is to foster a conversation to explore the ethical values and commitments that underpin the ways that we conceptualize the role of editing, and digital humanities projects more generally, especially with regard to project design, collaboration, technical choices, legal restrictions, funding, and sustainability.


Beginning with lunch at noon and the talks at 12:30. Please RSVP to, including any dietary restrictions you may have if you will be joining for lunch.
