Publication: Variants 14, the journal of the European Society for Textual Scholarship

Elli Bleeker
Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to inform you of the publication of the fourteenth issue of Variants, the journal of the European Society for Textual Scholarship. 

The issue provides an insightful reflection on ongoing developments in the field of textual scholarship. Topics range from automated collation to the functionalities of digital archives/editions; from a vindication of metrical information in Shakespeare's plays to the compelling histories of canonical texts like Dante's or Copernicus's.

The issue is available in Open Access on <>, where you can also freely download the PDFs of each of the contributions.
