Hands on skills: printing, editing and understanding variants
3 Sep 2018, 1.30AM–6.00PM
This free workshop is a unique opportunity for PhD students to gain practical experience using a mid-19th Century printing press, and a Hinman Collator, a device for comparing two copies of a text for differences, to better understand the practice of textual editing.
The hands-on training throughout the workshop will enable attendees to understand how variants (small differences in the text) come about, and how modern editors deal with them.
