Electronic Textual Cultures Lab

The Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) "engages in cross-disciplinary study of the past, present, and future of textual communication, and is a hub for digital humanities activities". Under the direction of Ray Siemens, the "ETCL acts as an intellectual centre for the activities of some twenty local faculty, staff, and students as well as visiting scholars who work closely with research centres, libraries, academic departments, and projects locally and in the larger community". The ETCL's teaching and training initiative, the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI), has "welcomed more than 1200 people from around the world". Current projects at the ETCL include a Study of Professional Reading Tools of Computing Humanists, ReKN, The Devonshire Manuscript: an electronic edition, and, in collaboration with Iter, the Renaissance Bibliography.
