Course Overview

The Editorial Institute at Boston University was formed with the conviction that the textually sound, contextually annotated edition is central to the life of many disciplines. Its primary aims are the promotion of critical awareness of editorial issues and practices and the provision of training in editorial methods. The Institute offers advanced degrees (MA and PhD) to students who successfully prepare either editions of important writings, with textual apparatus and annotation, or monographs concerned with editing or textual bibliography. The Institute is also the site for a number of noted editorial projects, including the Wordsworth Circle and editorial projects on T. S. Eliot and Sir James Fitzjames Stephen
