This talk will examine methods of text encoding and text analysis as complementary activities that can generate research questions and facilitate more expansive digital editions and critical archives. Using examples from my work on a digital ‘fluid-text’ edition of Herman Melville’s Billy Budd for the Melville Electronic Library and text analyses of marked books for his virtual library at Melville’s Marginalia Online, the seminar will explore how the traditions of textual scholarship shape our computational methodology, and how digital research has re-oriented traditional editorial workflows.
