This panel seeks to explore the possibilities of a more data-driven editing practice, one that sees not only our material (digital proxies, collections information, transcriptions, and metadata) but also our resulting products (corpora, editions) and all of our intermediary stages not as text or images or content, but as data per se. In the following sections, we will seek to reconcile the ambiguity inherent to humanities inquiry with the exactitude required of digital data, asking how we can ‘read’ this data, and what – if anything – is our responsibility as editors to provide access not merely to the final argument of our editions, but to the data that informs it. In particular the author describes the practice case of "Letters 1916".

Abstract

This panel seeks to explore the possibilities of a more data-driven editing practice, one that sees not only our material (digital proxies, collections information, transcriptions, and metadata) but also our resulting products (corpora, editions) and all of our intermediary stages not as text or images or content, but as data per se. In the following sections, we will seek to reconcile the ambiguity inherent to humanities inquiry with the exactitude required of digital data, asking how we can ‘read’ this data, and what – if anything – is our responsibility as editors to provide access not merely to the final argument of our editions, but to the data that informs it. In particular the author describes the practice case of "Letters 1916".
