CFP: Editing Early Texts: Practice and Protocol

Editing Early Texts: Practice and Protocol

15-16 June 2012

Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand

This symposium is for scholars and postgraduate students involved in the editing of early literary and non-literary texts. ‘Early’ is being interpreted quite broadly, c. 1500-1800, and speakers so far have editing interests in Shakespeare and early modern drama, early modern poetry and prose, eighteenth-century fiction, early modern women’s writing and early modern historical texts. Papers on the digital humanities and online editing are also strongly encouraged.

Professor Paul Salzman, La Trobe University, will be the keynote speaker. Professor Salzman is a Chief Investigator on The Material Cultures of Early Modern Women’s Writing: Editing, Reception, Mediation. He is the editor of the innovative online edition of Lady Mary Wroth (http://wroth.latrobe.edu.au/); and of two Oxford World’s Classics editions, Early Modern Women’s Writing, and An Anthology of Elizabethan Prose Fiction.
