ModNets Digital Editions
directors of Modernist Networks, a consortium of digital projects in
modernist literature and culture, invite proposals for digital editions of works
spanning the late 19th through the mid 20th centuries.
Our site (www.modnets.org) contains two very different examples, Notebooks of a
Woman Alone and The Lili Elbe Digital Archive.
the dual goals of providing a vetting community for digital modernist
scholarship and a technological infrastructure to support development of
scholarly projects and access to scholarship on modernist literature and
culture. ModNets aims to promote affiliated digital projects; to offer peer
review based on content, conception, and technical design; to provide editorial
and technical support; to evolve standards and “best practices”; and to
maintain a system for the aggregation of scholarly resources in the field.

online webinar offered every Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon Central US Time
(Chicago), starting September 30, 2022 and finishing on December 9, 2022 (11
weeks), we will go through all the necessary steps for creating a digital
edition of texts, beginning with coding plays, novels, letters, stories, and
poems in TEI, using and modifying XSLT programs that transform these TEI
documents into Web pages, and then launching the digital edition on the web. We
will also introduce participants to XPath and XQuery. Taught by a team of five
people, some graduates from previous versions of this webinar, the course has
been streamlined by offering to participants pre-made XSLT and CSS files that,
when used, enable launching a digital edition by Thanksgiving! We hope you can
sessions will be recorded and posted for participants whose schedules conflict
