When: Tuesday, June 13, 2017 - 09:00 to Wednesday, June 14, 2017 Where: An Foras Feasa, Maynooth University, Ireland
The aim of this two-day Masterclass, funded by the DiXIT Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network, is to bring together experts from the fields of Heritage 3D Visualisation and Digital Scholarly Editing to create a common vocabulary between the two disciplines. This Masterclass will explore and problematise the affordances of Virtual Worlds within the theories and methodologies of digital scholarly editing, including the constructing, annotating, reviewing, and evaluating VWs as texts.
By bringing together scholars from the two fields we will explore a series of theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the creation, annotation, and publication of virtual worlds with the ultimate aim to marry the practices of both communities in the creation of new three-dimensional editions that will address the following:
How do we consider virtual worlds as texts? What is the textuality of the virtual world? How do we retain the immersion of virtual worlds while providing comprehensive in-world documentation? How do we document ambiguity? How do we make the process of production transparent? What does an apparatus look like in a virtual world? If virtual worlds are the new editions, how are they going to be reviewed and evaluated?
