Renaissance Editing Workshop

Friday 26th May 2017, 14:00-17:00

Location: Wolfson Research Exchange


Have you ever thought about the critical editions you are using? Have you ever wondered about the relationship between your edition and the original manuscripts? Have you considered writing an edition of a text yourself?

The Renaissance Editing Workshop is a half-day event designed to act as both an introduction to different styles of editing, as well as a focused group to discuss Renaissance editing practices. It is running as part of the Warwick Arts Faculty Postgraduate Festival, 2017.
