Humanities Research Infrastructure and Tools (HRIT): An Environment for Collaborative Textual Scholarship

Development of a collaborative online editing environment and tagging tool for producing electronic scholarly editions and text archives.

Our object is, first, to identify best practice and define principles for electronic infrastructure for scholarly collaboration on primary literary and historical texts and for tools to enhance humanities scholarship. Second it is to build an open-source, collaborative, robust HRIT (Humanities Research Infrastructure and Tools) environment, in which to aggregate, link or cross-reference, edit, and share vetted primary documentary texts--along with their scholarly enhancements, analyses, and commentaries, in the form of markup, annotation, keyword tagging, linking, etc. And third, it is to create a Collaborative Tagging Tool (CaTT) that responds to said principles and infrastructure, enabling ordinary humanist scholars to create sophisticated scholarly electronic editions and archives in a collaborative environment. The result will be an ecology consisting of the infrastructure, an initial on-line tool, and a model vetting system.
