Records of Early English Drama: Digital Innovations for Enhanced Access

Development of an electronic publishing framework and supporting tools for Records of Early English Drama (REED), focusing on a pilot publication of documents on drama and secular entertainment performed between 1401 and 1642 in London's Inns of Court.

Volumes in the Records of Early English Drama (REED) series contain complex texts which qualify technically as data-sets. In the world of electronic publication, new means become available to access such data-sets. The proposed project will develop the framework, textual processing techniques, and editorial tools to enable single-source digital and print publication of future volumes in the REED series, beginning with the pilot collection of dramatic records for London: Inns of Court, edited by Alan H. Nelson. The code and documentation developed in this project will be made freely available for scholarly use under a standard open-source license such as the GPL.
