  3. 3. if you are going to mess around withsomething powerful that you do not fullyunderstand – even something benign –you had better do it with your eyes open.(Goldfarb, 1990, p. xiii)
  4. 4. [i]n spite of the fact that in the 1980s editorial circleswitnessed a paradigm shift in which the concept of adefinitive end product was widely replaced by theconcept of process in which multiple texts represent thework, nevertheless, the physical limitations of printeditions and the linear reading habits of most readershave continued to force the predominance of clear-reading texts as a primary feature of new scholarlyeditions.(Shillingsburg, 1996, p. 77)
  5. 5. The most important point arising from recenttheoretical discussions and computer capabilitiesmay be the inescapable recognition by the generalreader that any reading text is merely arepresentative of a work, not “the work itself”; forthere are other representations of it crowding indemanding attention as well.(Shillingsburg, 1996, p. 77-78).
  6. 6. present to a broad audience as sound a text(usually modernized and at a minimum price) as isconsistent with information that may be procurablethrough normal scholarly channels and thuswithout more special research than is economicallyfeasible.’(Bowers, 1969, p. 26)
  7. 7. ●the sweet promise of the social edition●the sour reality of sustainability●the bitter destiny of the record of variants●salty need for referentiality Time to dig up your chocolates
  8. 8. ● a proposal to remodel the scholarly edition with theuse of social media and extend digital editorialtraditions well into the age of Web 2.0.● a proposal for modeling professional reading● a timely alternative to the current types of digitaleditions● built on the achievements of New Historicism and Thesociology of text● a continuously changing knowledge space thatgenerates meaning through collaboration.
  9. 9. with the tools of social media at its centre, the socialedition is process-driven, privileging interpretativechanges based on the input of many readers; text isfluid, agency is collective, and many readers/editors,rather than single editor, shape what is important and,thus, broaden the editorial lens as well as the breadth,depth, and scope of any edition produced in this way.(Siemens et al., forthcoming)
