Dr Brett Hirsch

(Visiting Speaker, University of Western Australia)


Towards an Electronic Edition of Fair Em, or, Much Ado About the Miller’s Daughter of Manchester


This paper offers a work-in-progress report on an electronic critical edition of Fair Em, an Elizabethan dramatic comedy of disputed authorship. With the play as its focal point, this paper considers the promises and pitfalls associated with such digital editorial projects, including the incorporation of rich multimedia content, the long shadow of print publishing in an age of open access, the dynamics of collaboration and its challenges to traditional models of humanities research and evaluation, and the bugbear of sustainability and long-term digital preservation.


Refreshments will be served after the talk
