I attended the excellent Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship in Amsterdam during fall 2012 to discuss the MBDA project. The society’s journal issue from that conference was (finally!) published this spring. A version of my talk, “Digital Texts, Metadata, and the Multitude: New Directions in Participatory Editing” is available in that issue.
A related article, entitled “Participatory Culture, Participatory Editing, and the Emergent Archival Hybrid,” was published in Archive Journal during spring 2014.
The common thread that links these two pieces: participatory approaches to teaching and scholarship. Thanks to my many wonderful students at Bloomsburg and Berry for your contributions to MBDA and for making this work possible!
