Nicole DePolo, PhD student at the Editorial Institute, has been awarded a scholarship to attend the Norman Mailer Center’s week-long Historical Narrative Workshop. Congratulations, Nicole!
Congratulations to Lauren Eckenroth (MA) and Mary McCleary (PhD), both of whom successfully passed their dissertation defenses yesterday! The institute looks forward to celebrating their graduation this May.
This fall, for the first time, Professor Christopher Ricks will be offering a new course in collaboration with the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Mugar Library. This course, which will work directly with the archive’s holdings, will explore manuscripts, letters, and rare books for understanding and enjoyment. Undergraduates will have the opportunity to work with original manuscripts and to discuss the basic questions of principle and practice that constitute editing. Attention will be paid to writer’s revisions, to the modernizing of texts, to annotation of many kinds and purposes, and the pleasures of getting something right and of setting others right.
