Project Profile:

The Veil of Code


Description: The Veil of Code adapts the theories, vocabulary, and techniques of bibliographical inquiry to develop new methods for born-digital textual scholarship with the objective of equipping digital bibliographers with new empirical methods for investigating digital textuality through a series of case studies in digital bibliography. The project’s objective is not simply to extend traditional bibliography to new materials, but also to situate bibliographical work within the broader landscape of new media studies, whose mission is not just preservation or curation, but also interpretation.
