Most of the recommended readings for the course are in an electronic format and can be printed if desired from the electronic file. See the Selected Resources.
This course uses a rigorous hands-on approach to introduce students to the world of historical documentary editing and to the problems inherent in creating and publishing authoritative historical editions for the electronic media. Students gain a comprehensive overview of these subjects by selecting and editing historical manuscripts for electronic publication according to the current standards of textual editing and hypertextual methodology. The electronic editions produced by the class will be published on the World-Wide Web and archived on CD-Rom.
This homepage locates for access materials to be used in the course as well as materials developed and disseminated by the course members. Communication among the class members and the instructor should take place as much as possible through the use of the majordomo list HIUS-401.
