Preliminary announcement of the
1997 Conference on Editorial Problems

Problems in Editing for the Electronic Medium

7-9 November 1997
University College
University of Toronto

Convenors: Willard McCarty (King's College London)
Fred Unwalla (Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, Toronto)

The Conference on Editorial Problems, founded in 1964, holds annual
conferences to examine methods of editing texts. Attendance usually
consists of approximately 60 to 100 professional academic editors,
together with delegates from publishing houses, granting agencies, and
elsewhere. The invited papers are collected into a Conference volume
published in time for the next Conference. Thirty-one volumes are now
in print or in the Press, the most recent volumes from the University of
Toronto Press.

The objective of the 33rd annual Conference is to examine the practice of
editing as it is shaped by the electronic medium, and to explore the
practicality of the opportunities and the problems that come from their
implementation. Papers from 7 invited speakers will be followed by a
panel of Toronto scholars from a wide variety of disciplines. The
speakers are

Julia Flanders (Brown), "Data or Wisdom? Electronic editing,
empiricism, and the quantification of knowledge
John Lavagnino (Brown), "Access"
Jerome McGann (Virginia), "The Contradictory Imperatives of Eye and Mind"
Peter Robinson (De Montfort, Oxford), "The Canterbury Tales Project and
other electronic editions: where next?
Peter Shillingsburg (Mississippi), "The Dank Cellar of Electronic Texts"
C. M. Sperberg-McQueen (Illinois at Chicago), "Why You Should Not Teach
Your Edition How to Swim"
Kathryn Sutherland (Oxford), "The Real Presences of Texts"

The chair of the panel is Ian Lancashire (Toronto).

Unlike previous Conferences, "Computing the Edition" will be published in two
versions: one on paper, for the volume from the University of Toronto
Press, the other designed for the electronic medium, for the refereed
online series, Computing in the Humanities Working Papers,
and <http://www.kcl.ac.uk/kis/schools/hums/ruhc/chwp/>.

Registration is strictly limited.
