Congratulations to ANZSA Vice President Brett Hirsch, whose Digital Renaissance Editions was officially launched during the recent SAA meeting in Vancouver!
As ANZSA members will know from recent conferences etc., Brett’s been working on putting together the platform and team for this invaluable project for a number of years now, and the launch is at once the culmination of that industriousness but also only the beginning of the project’s mission to publish electronic critical editions of non-Shakespearean drama.
DRE has launched with completed editions of The Honest Whore, Parts One and Two (edited by Joost Daalder) and An Humorous Day’s Mirth (edited by Eleanor Lowe), and an impressive Editorial Board and General Textual Editors — not to mention the star-studded line up of Patrons (Alan Cumming, James Franco, Vanessa Redgrave, and Mark Rylance).
For those who missed the launch, a brief recap can be found here:
PS. DRE welcomes proposals!
