October 5-7; Oakland Marriott City Center, Oakland, California
The ADE is the country's principal organization for those interested in the challenges of documentary and textual editing. Its more than 500 members represent fields as varied as the history of science, the 19th century woman's suffrage movement, the papers of the Founding Fathers, and the personal correspondence and published writings of American literary figures, philosophers, and inventors.
Oakland meeting will include sessions on: "Editing California Writers" (Frank Norris, Robinson and Una Jeffery, and Ambrose Bierce); "Archival Gleanings: The Examples of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, and Edith Wharton"; "Documentary Editing in the Digital Age: How to Use a Comprehensive Electronic Edition for Fun, Profit, and Survival" (the electronic editions of the correspondence of the Emerson Brothers and a discussion of intellectual access to electronic editions); "Documentary Scholarship in the Bay Area" (spotlighting editorial work on the Tebtunis Papyri, Mark Twain's writings, and the Papers of Martin Luther King, Jr.); "Recent Developments in the Fashioning of Electronic Databases" (editions of the Bayeux Tapestry, "The New Age" journal, and the Walt Whitman Archive); "Editing the Spanish Southwest" (the publication of modern texts of Spanish colonial documents including those relating to the Coronado Expedition and the Oate Entrada into New Mexico).
The meeting also features a forum for defining the issues facing
documentary editing, editors, and funding agencies in the immediate future and opportunities for individual conferences with representatives of the NEH and NHPRC.
