        Subject: Editing Institute Welcomes Applications for 2014


The Association for Documentary Editing (ADE) welcomes applications for the 43rd Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents, to be held 20–24 July 2014 in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents is an annual five-day workshop for individuals new to the field of historical documentary editing. With the needs of the participants as a guide, experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles and practices of documentary editing and insight into the realities of work on a documentary edition.

Documentary editing is the craft of preparing historical writings or literary works for publication in print or online. The goal is to produce an authoritative edition of the material, with an accurate transcription of the original manuscript and an editorial framework that advances understanding of the text and context.

Participants in the Editing Institute might be joining the staff of an existing documentary editing project or launching their own. Since its inception in 1972, the Editing Institute has trained more than 500 individuals. These include not only full-time documentary editors but also college and university faculty and graduate students, archivists and librarians, government historians, public historians, and independent scholars.

The faculty for the 2014 Editing Institute will include: Cathy Moran Hajo (Margaret Sanger Papers at New York University), Ondine Le Blanc (Massachusetts Historical Society), Jennifer Stertzer (Papers of George Washington at the University of Virginia), and Bob Karachuk (Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library at Mississippi State University).

The Editing Institute charges no tuition, and travel stipends will be provided to participants living outside the Louisville area. Admission, however, is competitive. The deadline for applications is 15 March.

For an application or more information, please e-mail Bob Karachuk, ADE Education Director, ade-educationdir at documentaryediting.org.

The Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents is administered by the Association for Documentary Editing under a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an affiliate of the National Archives.
