In recent years, there has been a significant shift in scholarly culture and funding
strategies towards digital formats for edition projects. This is driven by the potential
for new forms of production, presentation and access that the digital promises. And it
involves a reassessment of the conventions that have determined editorial practice in
the age of print. This conference gathers together leading figures in the field to
exchange ideas about the state of digital editing, its future potential, challenges
and limits. How should we place ourselves relative to fundamental issues of authority/openness,
durability/fluidity? Can we establish a set of ideal types for digital editorial method,
or would its optimal strengths rather lie in more hybrid forms, including a productive
mode of cohabitation with the print formats that it appears to want to supersede?
