Records of Early English Drama: Publication of Regional Collections in a New Digital Platform

Editing and preparation for digital publication of the Records of Early English Drama volumes for Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, and Yorkshire North Riding collections. (36 months)

Lafayette College seeks funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to: 1) bring to born-digital publication two new collections of medieval and Renaissance dramatic records for the southern region of England: the counties of Berkshire, edited by Alexandra F. Johnston, and Hampshire, edited by Peter Greenfield and the late Jane Cowling; and 2) to prepare the Wiltshire collection, edited by Rosalind C. Hays and C.E. McGee for publication, with additional editorial work to be done for the Yorkshire North Riding collection, edited by David N. Klausner. These projects further demonstrate our commitment to editing collections produced as dynamic born-digital publications for open access online, a format that REED has been moving towards in deliberate steps during the past decade. With the recent digital pilot publication of the Staffordshire collection, edited by J.A.B. Somerset, this landmark goal will have been achieved by the proposed new grant period.

Records of Early English Drama: Northumberland

Archival research on the history of early drama in Northumberland, England, as part of the Records of Early English Drama series.
 

I seek a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship in order to continue my research in primary source documents for performances in Northumberland, England, from the earliest surviving manuscript evidence to the closing of the theaters by Parliament in 1642. The Records of Early English Drama (REED) Project has commissioned me to make a thorough search, to gather and edit all extant primary source documentary evidence of drama, minstrelsy, performance and public ceremony in England before 1642 from the private collections and public records offices throughout Northumberland, in archives that maintained an economic or political relationship with civic authorities or patrons in Northumberland, and in repositories to which records have been transferred. In addition to scholarly papers and articles that will be prepared throughout the course of this project, the end products will include the final hard copy volume of the REED series and a digital version of the Northumberland records.

Digital Publication of Records of Early English Drama

Editing and preparation for digital publication of the Records of Early English Drama of Staffordshire and Salisbury collections, with additional editorial preparation of the Berkshire and Yorkshire North Riding collections. (24 months)

After 38 years of highly respected hard-copy publications, the Records of Early English Drama is shifting its collections to free and open-access digital publication. The much-anticipated Civic London to 1558, 3 volumes (forthcoming April 2015), is the last volume to be produced primarily in hard copy. Over the past three years, REED has moved to born-digital collections, using digital formats to bring small and in-process collections quickly to the public, in searchable and interactive forms. A grant from the NEH will enable REED to begin to digitize existing collections, to complete editorial processing for two new collections, to begin the process on two further collections, and to continue the Pre-publication project, which allows editors to make records available as they are discovered.

Records of Early English Drama: Publication of Collections in Monograph and Digital Platforms

Editing and preparation for publication in the Records of Early English Drama of three to four volumes for Civic London to 1558; preparation for electronic publication of the records of the counties of Staffordshire and Salisbury. (24 months)

During the past 37 years, the Records of Early English Drama (REED) project has published 27 collections in 33 print volumes of primary source documents that record theatrical performances from early modern Britain through the closing of the theaters in 1642. A grant from National Endowment for the Humanities would support the next phase of the project, enabling us: 1) to bring to publication three and possibly four volumes for Civic London to 1558, edited by Dr. Anne Lancashire; 2) to publish the next provincial collection, the county of Staffordshire, edited by Dr. J.A.B. Somerset; and 3) to prepare the Salisbury collection, edited by Dr. Audrey Douglas. The latter two projects will also reflect our commitment to editing collections that will be produced as dynamic born-digital publications for access online, a format that REED has been moving toward in deliberate steps for the past few years.

To support the preparation of a multi-volume edition of the Records of Early English Drama.

The Records of Early English Drama (REED) project is an established, well-reputed international collaboration whose purpose is to identify, transcribe, and publish records of early entertainment in the British Isles. Over the past eighteen years REED has published sixteen collections of records in sixteen volumes, some 9,287 pages of original data on drama, secular music, dance, and other forms of entertainment from its beginnings to 1642, the close of the theatres. Currently eighty percent of the remaining records have been collected, the majority of them by United States' collection editors, and await in-house editorial support for publication. This application requests NEH funding to support the REED Editorial Office at the University of Toronto, primarily the staff salaries which will see United States' editors' research to reputable, accurate, published fruition.
