Spring School 2012
Synopsis: Critical Editing relies much on the cooperation with archivists. In particular the possibilities to integrate digitized original material into the edition have changed the traditional methods.
Unfortunately the established teaching in the humanities hasn’t got the room to introduce the students into the digital methods. Thus the Institute for Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE), the International Centre for Archival Research (ICARUS) and the Institute for Austrian Historical Research (IOeG) have set up seperate school on “Digital Scholarly Editing“.
The course introduced the technical basics of digital editing, the existing standards and techniques specialised for critical editing and the theory of the digital scholarly edition. In particular it was taught how to use the TEI as the de-facto standard for digital textual scholarship for critical editing. It addressed young and experienced scholars working on a critical edition and interested in bringing it into the digital world, in particular graduate- and PhD students.
