Textual Communities and the Canterbury Tales with Peter Robinson
Monday February 19, 6:00pm
Lake Shore Campus, Mundelein Hall, Room 515
This talk by Peter Robinson will introduce the new Textual Communities system for online collaborative editing, and illustrate its use with examples from the Canterbury Tales Project. Textual Communities is now in pre-release "sandbox" mode, and you are invited to try out the new system. The talk will discuss what earlier stages of the Canterbury Tales Project were able to discover using earlier systems, and how this new system might enable this project (and others) to achieve more.

He is active in the creation of tools for scholarly editing, the development of standards for digital resources, formerly as a member of the Text Encoding Initiative and as leader of the EU funded MASTER project, and has published on Chaucer, scholarly editing, and the digital humanities.
