Digitizing the Past

How do historical sources become digitized? And what kinds of editorial choices go into their transcription and collation into editions?

This is the homepage for DH 300: Digital Editing and Publishing, a digital humanities course at Wilfrid Laurier University. Here, you’ll find the results of student two digitization projects working with the C.H. Little Letter Project and medieval Dictes. Transcriptions, annotations, and homepages are all student created. Through this course we explore current contexts of change and innovation in digital editing, and provide students with essential skills and hands-on experience in editing and publishing texts online.
