        Subject: Digital Renaissance Editions launched


Digital Renaissance Editions officially launched during the Shakespeare
Association of America meeting in Vancouver, on Saturday 4 April 2015. The
project launched its new website 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).

Digital Renaissance Editions publishes open-access critical editions of
non-Shakespearean early English drama and related materials. Each edition
offers a fully annotated modern-spelling text, collations of textual
variants, facsimiles and transcriptions of early textual witnesses, and
generous introductions and commentary. A growing database of multimedia
performance materials supplements the editions, and critical essays on
topics relevant to the study of early English drama are soon to be
commissioned. Digital Renaissance Editions shares the publication platform
developed by the Internet Shakespeare Editions, allowing for complementary
interlinking between both projects' editions and content. All content is
subject to rigorous peer review, and is completely open access.

Some 50 scholars, theatre practitioners, directors of stage and screen,
software developers and designers from around the world serve on the
project's editorial and advisory boards. Such a project also relies on its
users -- the scholarly community in particular -- to grow and thrive. We
invite you to join our mission to expand the canon of early modern drama,
one play at a time. We welcome your contributions, whether by proposing to
edit a play for the series, submitting materials to the performance
database and Critical Companion, using the completed editions and
works-in-progress in your teaching and research, or by simply reporting
bugs, errors, and areas of possible improvement to us. We have much to
accomplish, and this is only the beginning.
