CMRS Colloquium Series
"Textual Communities, or everyone an editor"
Peter Robinson, Department of English
Thursday, March 15, 2018
Talk begins at 4:30 pm
St Thomas More College, room 200
This talk 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.
