C21 Editions

C21 Editions will investigate and advance the practices of scholarly digital editing by researching and prototyping data standards that accommodate born-digital content such as social media, while also further integrating the curatorial and statistical aspects of Digital Humanities by examining how computer-assisted analytical methods can be embedded into edition making. In doing so, the project will produce a range of valuable scholarly and public resources, specifically, two high impact digital editions and the reproducible frameworks on which they are based.

The prototypes will include an edition of a prominent Irish author’s social media presence and a machine-assisted teaching edition of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.



The project is funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Irish Research Council (IRC) as part of the UK-Ireland Collaboration in Digital Humanities.
