        Subject: Announcing the publication of Digital Critical Editions


    Topics in the Digital Humanities, University of Illinois Press, is
    delighted to announce the publication of 'Digital Critical Editions'.

This volume, edited by Daniel Apollon, Claire Bélisle, and Philippe 
Régnier, consists of nine chapters which explores the interweaving of 
traditional and digital textual scholarship.

/Digital Critical Editions/ examines how transitioning from print to a 
digital milieu deeply affects how scholars deal with the work of editing 
critical texts. It explores how changing technology and evolving reader 
expectations leads to the development of specific editorial products, 
while threatening traditional forms of knowledge and methods of textual 
scholarship.

/Digital Critical Editions/ provides digital editors, researchers, 
readers, and technological actors with insights for addressing 
disruptions that arise from the clash of traditional and digital 
cultures, while also offering a practical roadmap for processing 
traditional texts and collections with today's state-of-the-art editing 
and research techniques thus addressing readers' new emerging reading 
habits.
