In this episode, we return to the topic of peer review, this time discussing the peer review process for editing and publishing scholarly editions. Robert interviews Mark Kamrath, a Professor of English at the University of Central Florida. Mark is the General Editor of The Charles Brockden Brown Electronic Archive and Scholarly Edition and a Co-Director of UCF's Center for Humanities and Digital Research. In the interview, Mark describes in detail his experience of editing an online scholarly edition of the papers of the Early American historian, editor, and novelist Charles Brockden Brown, as well as the difference between a print and online edition. It is an edifying episode for anyone interested in combining digital humanities approaches in the context of modern language scholarship.
