Geoffrey Rockwell gave a presentation on November 18th entitled “The Face of the Scholarly Corpus and Edition” at the conference “Research Foundations for Understanding Books and Reading in the Digital Age: Text and Beyond.” The conference was held at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan.

The presentation explored ways that scholarly work can be studied across print and digital epochs. Three frameworks to aid in this study were proposed: one of various types of corpora, one of interface features, and one for a diachronic study of interface.

Three handouts were developed for this talk, PDFs of which are given below.
