Ryerson’s Centre for Digital Humanities is a founding supporter of COVE, The Central Online Victorian Educator. PI Lorraine Janzen Kooistra is an active contributor to this scholar-driven open-access platform that publishes peer-reviewed Victorian material. Each year, a Ryerson COVE RA has the opportunity to work with this international consortium to markup and publish digital editions and born-digital scholarship for online use in classrooms around the world.

In addition to beta-testing tools and advising on protocols and policies for COVE, Lorraine Janzen Kooistra has collaborated on three peer-reviewed editions to date:

Goblin Market, by Christina Rossetti (co-edited with Antony H. Harrison et al);

“The Sonnet,” by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (co-edited with Dino Franco Felluga, Elizabeth

Helsinger, and Jermoe McGann); and

The Were-Wolf, by Clemence Housman (co-edited with graduate students in Digital Publishing).

Her essay, “Teaching Transformation,” which discusses the process of creating The Were-Wolf edition with her graduate students, is published on the COVE Teaching page.
