Keynote Address

Building Toward the Social Scholarly Edition:
A Digital Humanities Narrative

DR. RAYMOND SIEMENS
Distinguished Professor and Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing
University of Victoria

This talk explores, via narrative and example, research contexts toward the social scholarly edition, among them notions of Big Humanities and Humanities 2.0, the nature of impact in and beyond academic environments, and engaging extended community through work anchored in an academic research agenda. A prime example will be the social edition of the Devonshire Manuscript (BL Add 17492), http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/The_Devonshire_Manuscript.
