“Remodeling Alfred’s Boethius with the tol ond andweorc of Edition Production Technology (EPT)" (Book Section)
Title: “Remodeling Alfred’s Boethius with the tol ond andweorc of Edition Production Technology (EPT)"
Author: Kevin Kiernan
Editor: Kevin Kiernan
Editor: Antonette DiPaolo Healey
Abstract: Edition Production Technology (EPT) is a digital workbench that can preserve and display manuscript features while still making the text accessible to scholars and students alike. An image-based electronic edition of the largely inaccessible Cotton manuscript helps clarify the seemingly upside-down manuscript tradition of Alfred’s Boethius.

Making Sense: Constructing Meaning in Early English (Book)
Title: Making Sense: Constructing Meaning in Early English
Editor: Kevin Kiernan
Editor: Antonette DiPaolo Healey
Abstract: The five essays in this volume discuss texts either from the Old English period or from the transitional twelfth century, and each explores, from differing perspectives, how today's readers make sense of, or construct meanings from, early English documents." "The first two essays specifically focus on the research tools of the Dictionary of Old English as strategic aids in the discovery of meaning. The other three, while also availing themselves of the Dictionary of Old English, focus on how scholarly editing tries to make sense of the complex ways medieval documents themselves attempted to make sense - through evolving translations, variant versions, selective adaptations, explanatory glosses, expansive commentaries - of the "same" texts over this long and linguistically diverse span of time." "From word to dictionary, from Beowulf to Boethius, from prose and verse to prose-and-verse, from Latin sources and resources to Old English transformations, from glosses and commentaries to canon formation, from consuetudinaries to penitentials, from manuscripts to electronic and print editions, these five essays reflect some of the direct and round-about paths scholars take in their search to understand and elucidate our culturally distant primary materials.

“Digital Facsimiles in Editing: Some Guidelines for Editors of Image-based Electronic Editions" (Book Section)
Title: “Digital Facsimiles in Editing: Some Guidelines for Editors of Image-based Electronic Editions"
Author: Kevin Kiernan
Editor: Lou Burnard
Editor: Katherine O'Brien O'Keeffe
Editor: John Unsworth
Abstract: In the past several years it has become imperative to bring the research agendas of the humanities and computer science together to advance our abilities for representing, editing, and accessing our cultural records. What is urgently needed to take full advantage of encoding schemes of scholarly editions is the seamless integration of text and image, which will ultimately serve the interests of not only image-based scholarly editions but also the broader cultural world. The Computer Science research community is very interested in image search and techniques for developing efficient and accurate searching, while the humanities computing research community is similarly absorbed in textual encoding. Neither area is likely to make real progress, however, until their complementary research agendas converge.

The Source of the Napier fragment of Alfred's Boethius (Article)
Title: The Source of the Napier fragment of Alfred's Boethius
Author: Kevin Kiernan
Abstract: In 1887 A. S. Napier published a semi-diplomatic transcript of a fragment from an Old English Boethius manuscript, which he reported finding the year before as a flyleaf at the end of Bodleian Library, Oxford, MS Junius 86 (Napier 1887). Medieval and Renaissance binders sometimes used the leaves of older manuscripts, when they had lost their interest, at the front and back of bindings to reinforce them and protect their contents (Ker 1957, xli). Junius 86 is the second part of an eleventh-century collection of, for the most part, Old English homilies.1 Unfortunately, the fragment was removed and temporarily mislaid soon after its discovery in 1886, and no one other than Napier has ever been able to examine it (Sedgefield 1899, xvi.). For the inaugural issue of the Digital Medievalist it is de rigueur to use digital tools for analyzing virtual manuscripts. For this job I will be wielding several digital tools originally developed for the Electronic Boethius in order to create and analyze a virtual facsimile of the lost manuscript leaf Napier describes and transcribes.

Electronic Beowulf, Third Edition (Book)
Title: Electronic Beowulf, Third Edition
Editor: Kevin Kiernan
Abstract: The revision of the third edition of Electronic Beowulf (British Library Publications and University of Chicago Press 2010) was facilitated by digital tools first developed under the Electronic Boethius grant. These tools were subsequently developed under grants from NSF and Mellon as EPT (Edition Production Technology) and EPPT (Edition Production and Presentation Technology). They are now also called IBX (Image Based XML).
