Thank you, Nikolaus Wasmoen ADE Education Director --- The Association for Documentary Editing (ADE) is pleased to announce the 48th Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents (IEHD) to be held on the campus of Princeton University, June 16-20, 2019. --Do you want to learn how to design, propose, and execute a high-impact documentary editing project? --Are you excited about an editorial project that you have begun to plan or to put together, but are not sure how to proceed? --Are you having difficulty identifying which of the many available editorial methods, models, web and/or print platforms would be the most effective for you and your specific project? --If you recently began working for an established editorial project, or are otherwise entering the field for the first time, are you interested in learning about what it will take to become a successful editorial project leader? If any of these questions apply to you, we encourage you to apply to this year's IEHD, where the full range of tasks and issues involved in producing high-quality documentary editions will be addressed in an intensive seminar under the guidance of skilled and experienced faculty and alongside peers from a wide variety of fields and backgrounds. We are especially interested in applicants who have already begun seriously thinking about or planning new editorial projects, whether as standalone works or as parts of larger undertakings. At the IEHD, we hope to connect the next group of leaders and pioneers in the field of documentary editing with the guidance, understanding, and resources they will need to realize their goals. No previous editorial or technical experience is required. We welcome applications from individuals in any field who would benefit from intensive training in the design and execution of a documentary editing project. The purpose of the IEHD is to provide not a narrow technical training but the preparing of individuals to contribute to the field of documentary editing, broadly conceived, over the course of their careers by developing innovative, major projects and pursuing leadership roles. To do those things, new or emerging editors will need a broad and varied understanding of how editorial projects are designed, managed, and maintained. The IEHD equips participants with such an understanding of their work through a mix of topical discussions, such as sessions on "Annotation Policies" or "Choosing a Digital Publishing Platform," frequent hands-on exercises, and close interaction with potential mentors and advisors. Through the sponsorship of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an affiliate of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), we are able to offer free admission to the IEHD and to provide a $1200 stipend to qualifying participants to defray the costs of attendance, including travel and housing. At this year's location, a relatively affordable housing option will be made available through Princeton University's campus housing, with more information provided to admitted applicants before the deadline to confirm attendance. Participants in the IEHD will also receive a one-year membership to the ADE and free registration for the ADE's 2019 Annual Meeting, which immediately follows the institute in the same location. IEHD graduates are encouraged to stay through the annual meeting, where they will have the option to showcase their work to the general membership of the ADE as part of the conference's opening poster session. Additional support and instructions for the poster session will be provided during the lead-up to the IEHD. More about Documentary Editing and the IEHD: Documentary editing is the craft of preparing historical writings for publication in print or online. The goal is to produce an authoritative edition of the material, with an accurate transcription of the original manuscript and an editorial framework that facilitates understanding of the text and context. The IEHD is an annual five-day workshop for individuals new to historical documentary editing. Experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles of their field and insight into the realities of their work. Topics covered include the core tasks of documentary editing -- collection and cataloging, selection and digitization, transcription and encoding, annotation and contextualization, proofreading and verification, organization and layout, copyediting and indexing. Attention is also given to the related concerns of planning and budgeting, funding and promotion, book production and web design, teaching and curriculum development, outreach and advocacy. The exact curriculum depends on the needs of the participants. Participants in the IEHD might be joining the staff of an existing documentary editing project or launching their own. Since its inception in 1972, the IEHD has trained more than 500 individuals. These include not only full-time documentary editors but also college and university faculty and graduate students, archivists, librarians, government historians, public historians, and independent scholars. Admission to the Institute for the Editing of Historical Documents is competitive: participation is normally limited to 18 people. Participants are selected on the basis of their ability to benefit from the training. Applications are welcomed from all newcomers to historical documentary editing. Criteria for admission include the historical importance of the applicant's project, its feasibility, institutional and other financial support for it, progress on it to date, and the applicant's potential to further it. Applications due by February 15, 2019 [extended deadline]. Admissions decisions will be announced by early March. If you have any questions about your application, contact the Education Director, Nikolaus Wasmoen, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
