Digital Scholarly Editions

  • This video features Elena Pierazzo, Professor of Italian Studies and Digital Humanities, Université Grenoble, Alpes.  In this video Elena talks about the process of modelling text, and argues that digital editions make scholars think out of the page, thus enabling a process of theoretical enquiry and experimentation. She also discusses the role of the editor in digital editions and the importance of transforming and preserving texts for the following generations.
