In July 2013, “Early Modern Digital Agendas” created a forum under the direction of Jonathan Hope, Professor of Literary Linguistics at the University of Strathclyde. It afforded the opportunity for twenty faculty, information staffers, and advanced graduate student participants to historicize, theorize, and critically evaluate current and future digital approaches to early modern literary studies—from Early English Books Online-Text Creation Partnership (EEBO-TCP) to advanced corpus linguistics, semantic searching, and visualization theory—with discussion growing out of, and feeding back into, their own projects (current and envisaged). With the guidance of expert visiting faculty, participants paid attention to the ways new technologies were and are shaping the very nature of early modern research and the means by which scholars interpret texts, teach their students, and present their findings to other scholars.
