¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Literary Studies in the Digital Age: An Evolving Anthology, launched in 2013, is the MLA’s first born-digital open-access anthology. It continues to grow: two new draft essays have been chosen by the editors for open review. The editors invite you to read these drafts and comment on them. The editors may then ask the authors to revise their work in the light of your comments, with the goal of eventually including the revised essays in the anthology.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Since public review and commentary help scholars develop their ideas, the editors hope that readers will also continue to comment on the already published essays in this volume, thereby helping this living collection chart new directions in digital literary studies.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 To help promote more comprehensive coverage of the field, we are also happy to announce that Dene Grigar and Elizabeth Lorang have joined us as associate editors. Their expertise in electronic literature and library science and information studies should enhance future iterations of the collection.
¶ 5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 We began the process of creating this anthology with the intention of providing a primer to core tools and techniques for computational approaches to literary studies. Yet, since literary studies represents a confluence of fields and subfields, tools and techniques, and since computational approaches come from a great variety of sources, it became clear that any primer would have to be dynamic and capable of incorporating a rich and growing array of methodologies.
¶ 6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 As a result, we’re exceptionally pleased to publish this anthology with the launch of MLA Commons, knowing at the same time that our work here is not done. We are excited about the opportunity that the Commons and its community presents for building on the foundation laid by the initial contributors to Literary Studies in the Digital Age.
