In this hands-on course you will produce your own edition (of a historical text or group of texts), which you will find, select, transcribe, analyse and annotate. We will examine how new technologies have transformed the editing and publication of historical texts and your training will include use of digital technologies to focus on real data to make discoveries about culture, society and the history and transmission of the English language. (No specialized computing knowledge is required in advance for this course.)
