Lexicon of Scholarly Editing

Project Description

The Lexicon of Scholarly Editing (#LexiconSE on Twitter) is an open access academic resource that offers definitions for contested concepts in the fields of Scholarly Editing and Textual Criticism from a variety of languages. Rather than writing new definitions for these concepts, however, the Lexicon gathers definitions from academic journals, monographs, and the like, in order to reveal the lively multilingual debate these concepts have spurred in the field. Initiated by Dirk Van Hulle, the LexiconSE was developed and maintained by Wout Dillen as part of his Ph.D. dissertation. The Lexicon is affiliated to the University of Antwerp‘s Centre for Manuscript Genetics, the European Society for Textual Scholarship, the FonteGaia Project, and was made possible through the funding we received from the European Research Council under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) / ERC grant agreement n° 31360911.
