EN 3ER: EDITING THE RENAISSANCE

This module begins by ‘unediting’ the Renaissance, introducing students to the text as material artefact. Topics for discussion include: authorship and authority; early modern literary production; scribal publication and print publication; writing for the stage/page; theories of editing; texts and textuality; digitalisation and digital editions. The first half of the module examines core texts/topics, and students then proceed to work on specific texts and editorial problems, for which they receive seminar and tutorial support.
