The Medieval Institute presents a lecture by Peter Robinson, Bateman Professor of English at the University of Saskatchewan, where he is currently leading development of the “Textual Communities” project, which aims to provide a platform for collaborative scholarly editing, building on his previous experience in the creation of digital tools for editors. Active in the development of standards for digital resources, formerly as a member of the Text Encoding Initiative and as leader of the EU funded MASTER project, he has also published on Chaucer, scholarly editing, and the digital humanities. In 1991 he co-founded the Canterbury Tales project and has been involved with it ever since.
