General description: is an electronic edition of poetry by the Dadaist artist, performer, and poet Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. Work on this digital edition began as part of the dissertation entitled “The Makings of Digital Modernism” by Tanya Clement. A portion of the dissertation is included here as the essay “Knowledge Representation and the Networked Text in In Transition.” This scholarly edition comprises digital surrogates and transcriptions of multiple manuscript versions of twelve poems by Freytag-Loringhoven. The manuscripts are housed in the Papers of Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, which are among the holdings in Special Collections of the University of Maryland (UM), College Park, Libraries.

Implementation description: Tanya Clement created the digital surrogates of the manuscripts and transcribed and encoded them in TEI P5 XML, using parallel segmentation. In addition, Clement augmented this instantiation with the free, open-source Javascript application called the Versioning Machine (v.4.0), which underlies the interface and allows for the cross-comparisons between these digital surrogates.
