30 Months, Fixed-Term, Whole-Time Post
The C21 Editions project (IRC/W001489/1) is seeking a Post-Doctoral Researcher with expertise in scholarly editing, digital humanities or relevant disciplines to make a significant contribution to its research activities. C21 Editions is seeking to explore and make a direct contribution to the future of digital scholarly editing and digital publishing. When academics mention "scholarly editions", they are typically referring to expertly curated textual resources or collections, designed to bring some sense of order or meaning to a particular set of materials. One of the major achievements of the digital humanities is the role its community has played in bringing scholarly editions to digital and web-based platforms, improving their research, pedagogical, and societal value through greater dissemination and access. However, despite all that has been achieved in the three or so decades since DH emerged, the digital scholarly edition is now in danger of becoming obsolete in an increasingly digital world. Most existing digital editions and publishing platforms mimic the structure of books, presenting static content in a page-based structure. This project aims to remedy that situation by engaging with experts and stakeholder groups in order to establish the methods and principles for developing the scholarly digital editions of the future.
The specific aims of the project in which the successful candidate will be expected to participate include:
The ideal candidate will have expertise in scholarly editions and digital scholarly editing or a relevant discipline, as well as a PhD qualification in a relevant field. A background in literary and/or cultural studies is also desirable. While not essential, the ideal candidate will be interested in the application of participatory research methods and have a familiarity with or willingness to develop skills in thematic analysis and design thinking.
The successful candidate will be based in the Department of Digital Humanities at University College Cork (UCC), but will be expected to travel to and work with collaborators at the University of Sheffield’s Digital Humanities Institute. The successful candidate must be able to begin work in early January 2022.
