This graduate training workshop will cover topics in: 

  • Paleography and Cataloging of Medieval Manuscripts
  • 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 medieval manuscripts. 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. The workshop will result in a collaborative digital edition. The manuscript selected for this workshop is Houghton Lat. 159, a late medieval Book of Hours written in Latin; we will focus on a selection of suffrages. No language proficiencies are required for participation in this course.

The workshop will run from Saturday, October 19th to Sunday, October 20th, 2019, from 9.30am to 4.30pm. This graduate-run workshop is free of charge, and lunch will be provided for participants. A limited number of small need-based travel bursaries are available for participants traveling to Cambridge. The workshop will be limited to twelve places – preference will be given to graduate students with a demonstrated need for training in manuscript study and text encoding. 

More information about the upcoming workshop and previous workshops can be found on the website – please read this information before applying, and apply online by September 20th. Applicants will be notified whether they can be offered a place by September 23rd.
