Friday 28th – Saturday 29th April 2017

The School of English, Kennedy Hall, The Scores, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9AL

This two-day symposium examines the world of textual editing, and specifically the practices, pitfalls and responsibilities attached to editing nineteenth-century texts today. While facilitating discussion between more senior and experienced editors from across the globe, a further key aim of the symposium is to offer ECRs and PGRs an insight into the editing process. The symposium schedule will take a mixed format of lectures, workshops, and roundtable discussions arranged to encourage knowledge exchange and the sharing of best practice when editing nineteenth-century texts.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Penny Fielding (University of Edinburgh)
  • Professor Alison Lumsden (University of Aberdeen)
  • Professor Daniel A. Robinson (Widener University)
  • Professor Dorothy Driver (University of Adelaide)
  • Professor Francis O’Gorman (University of Edinburgh)
  • Dr Daniel Cook (University of Dundee)
  • Dr Carolyn Burdett (Birkbeck)
  • Dr Andrew van der Vlies (Queen Mary University of London)
  • Dr Susan Manly (University of St Andrews)
