Digital Editions: The Case of T. S. Eliot
A short course offered by the T. S. Eliot International Summer School
Event date: January 17, 2023
Time: 10:00am - 5:00pm
T. S. Eliot is once more in the news. The centenary of The Waste Land has once again thrust the Nobel Prize winning poet into the spotlight of the international popular media. The past decade has witnessed a publishing renaissance of new primary materials by Eliot, new editions of his poems, letters, and prose that will transform how we understand him and his place in literary history . This special study day offers participants the chance to talk with the editors about the aims and features of the newly launched digital platforms for Eliot’s works; to think about Eliot’s changing place in modernism; and to reflect on how modern readers use both print and digital editions together. Led by Prof. Anthony Cuda, editor of the new online edition of The Complete Prose of T. S. Eliot and Director of the T. S. Eliot International Summer School, with Prof. Ron Schuchard, General editor of The Complete Prose and founder of the summer school, and Prof. Jayme Stayer, coeditor of The Complete Prose.
This workshop is aimed at those interested in the works of T. S. Eliot, those with an interest in digital editions and digital humanities, or both.
