OPEN: 26-27 April, 2019 — Yale University

DIGITAL EDITING AND THE MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT ROLL

April 26th and 27th, 2019

Yale University

This graduate training workshop will cover topics in:

  •         Paleography and Cataloging of Medieval Manuscript Rolls
  •         Manuscript Transcription and Scholarly Editing
  •         Introduction to the Digital Edition: Challenges and Best Practices
  •         Collaborative Editing
  •         XML, Text Encoding Fundamentals and the TEI Schema

No prior paleography or encoding experience is required.

The workshop covers the fundamentals of digital editing while tackling the codicological challenges posed by manuscript rolls. Practical sessions inform collective editorial decision-making: participants will undertake the work of transcription and commentary, and encode (according to TEI P5 protocols) the text and images of a medieval manuscript roll. The workshop will result in a collaborative digital edition. The manuscript selected for this workshop is Beinecke 1187, a late medieval Arma Christi roll written in Dutch. No language proficiencies are required for participation in this course.

The workshop will run April 26th and 27th, 2019 (Friday-Saturday) 9.30am-4.30pm. This graduate-run workshop is free of charge, and lunches will be provided for participants. A limited number of small need-based travel bursaries are available for participants traveling to New Haven. The workshop will be limited to ten places – preference will be given to graduate students with demonstrated need for training in manuscript study and text encoding.

Apply online by February 14th. Applicants will be notified whether they can be offered a place by February 20th. For more information,  email the organizers at digitalmanuscriptrolls@gmail.com.
