I had the distinct pleasure of participating in a panel at MLA 2016 last month, titled “Bibliography in the Digital Age: Tools, Technologies, Theories” and sponsored by the forum Bibliography and Scholarly Editing.
Besides learning about great projects from really smart people, I presented the Archive’s most recent work on a Four Zoas digital edition as well as my own Photoshop experiments. I contextualized this recent work among attitudes of prototyping and a generative humanities that builds [things] as a way to think and learn about texts. “It’s like thinking with your hands,” is how I put it.
Anyway, I could cobble together a recap for the blog here, but esteemed panelist Kirstyn Leuner from Dartmouth cranked out a Storify of all the good tweets that #s522 generated, and that seems better than anything I could do on my own. It’s great to see Blake Archive activities in conversation with current and future endeavors of digital bibliography.
