         Subject: Seminar with Peter Shillingsburg, 8 February

All within range of London are cordially invited to attend a seminar
given by Peter Shillingsburg,
Professor of English and Director of the Centre for Textual Studies,
De Montfort University, on Thursday, 8 February, entitled "The Work
Implied, the Work Represented, and the Work Interpreted". This
event, in the London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship, will
take place at 5.30 pm, in ST275 (Stewart House, 32 Russell Square,
Bloomsbury, http://igrs.sas.ac.uk/events/location.htm).

Professor Shillingsburg's three-part seminar begins by (1) describing
what might be the nature of literary works and texts (the "thing"
that might be tranported into the electronic medium from a material
one), (2) examining what is entailed in representing or
re-representing a work in ways that might be more or less--preferably
less--misleading, and (3) embracing the subjectivity of editing and
exposing the chimera of objectivity in scholarly editing regardless
of medium. The purpose is to emphasize the complexity of the task
and suggest a collaborative way to address the idea of electronic
scholarly editing.

I hope to see you there.
