Exploring technology, ethics, and culture to unlock digital scholarship’s future

Futures of Digital Scholarly Editing navigates the ever-shifting terrain of digital academia, examining practical and ethical considerations as technology continues to evolve. In this indispensable collection, digital humanities practitioners and scholars work with a wide range of archival materials to confront key challenges surrounding the adaptation and sustainability of digital editorial projects as well as their societal impact.

Broaching essential questions at the nexus of technology and culture, Futures of Digital Scholarly Editing is organized around three principal frameworks: access, sustainability, and interoperability; ethics and community involvement; and the evolution of textual scholarship. From addressing outdated technical infrastructures to fostering new collaborations, this volume serves as a beacon guiding scholars and institutions through the complexities of digital editing in an era of profound technological and societal transformation.
