What might a social scholarly edition look like? This is a question Ray Siemens, Meagan Timney, Cara Leitch, Corina Koolen and Alex Garnett of the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (Victoria, Canada) try to answer in a recently published article in Literary and Linguistic Computing. Which (elements of) social media can we and should we incorporate in our scholarly editions? And what does this mean for digital literary studies? Two accompanying guiding bibliographies were published in Digital Humanities Quarterly.
Corina Koolen, one of the co-authors, is a PhD candidate liaised with the Riddle of Literary Quality project. Rens Bod and Karina van Dalen-Oskam are her promotors.
