Calls for Workshop Participants

OPEN: 6-7 DECEMBER 2019 — University College London

DIGITAL EDITING AND THE MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT FRAGMENT:
A GRADUATE WORKSHOP WITH UCL SPECIAL COLLECTIONS
UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON 6-7 DECEMBER 2019

This graduate training workshop will cover topics in:
• Palaeography and Cataloguing of Medieval Manuscripts and Fragments
• Manuscript Transcription and Scholarly Editing
• Introduction to the Digital Edition: Challenges and Best Practices
• Collaborative Editing
• XML, Text Encoding Fundamentals and the TEI Schema

This workshop covers the fundamentals of digital editing while tackling the codicological challenges posed by manuscript fragments. 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 or fragment. The workshops will result in a collaborative digital edition.
The workshop will run 6-7 December 2019 (Friday & Saturday 9.00am-5.00pm). This graduate-run workshop is free of charge. The workshop is limited to 12 places; preference will be given to graduate students with a demonstrated need for training in manuscript study and text encoding.

An information booklet and syllabus can be found here – please read this document before applying, and apply online by November 25th. (https://forms.gle/sosrS9H876mAs3q28) Applicants will be notified whether they can be offered a place by November 27th.

No prior palaeography or encoding experience is required. For more information, see the project website (digitalrollsandfragments.com/workshops), or email the London organisers at: demmrlondon@gmail.com
