Editing and preparation for digital publication of the Records of Early English Drama volumes for Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, and Yorkshire North Riding collections. (36 months)

Lafayette College seeks funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to: 1) bring to born-digital publication two new collections of medieval and Renaissance dramatic records for the southern region of England: the counties of Berkshire, edited by Alexandra F. Johnston, and Hampshire, edited by Peter Greenfield and the late Jane Cowling; and 2) to prepare the Wiltshire collection, edited by Rosalind C. Hays and C.E. McGee for publication, with additional editorial work to be done for the Yorkshire North Riding collection, edited by David N. Klausner. These projects further demonstrate our commitment to editing collections produced as dynamic born-digital publications for open access online, a format that REED has been moving towards in deliberate steps during the past decade. With the recent digital pilot publication of the Staffordshire collection, edited by J.A.B. Somerset, this landmark goal will have been achieved by the proposed new grant period.
