In this video essay, I focus on the role of the editor in relation to digital heritage,as it is the area within the digital humanities that I am most passionate about. I look at two aspects in this regard: hypertext and digital scholarly editing. I briefly define digital cultural heritage and move on to discuss aspects of hypertext such as hyper-editing and hyper-archives like the Rossetti Archive, and the role of the editor in this context.
I move on to take a very brief look at the role of the traditional scholarly editing, and then discuss new forms of digital scholarly editing such as peer-to-peer and post publication review. The discussion then focuses on crowdsourcing as a form of digital scholarly editing. Within the video essay I refer to the arguments of several digital humaities scholars and mention webiste examples, all of which are listed below.
