DIGITAL EDITING AND THE MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT FRAGMENT

December 8th-9th, 2017

University College London

0C9FB9CB72D349B2A8C0D506BDAB0825

This graduate training workshop will cover topics in:

  • Palaeography and Cataloguing of Medieval Manuscript 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
  • No prior palaeography or encoding experience is required.

The 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 fragment. The workshop will result in a collaborative digital edition of a fragment of John Gower’s great Middle English work, Confessio Amantis (University College London, Special Collections MS FRAG/ANGL/1).

The workshop will run December 8th and 9th (Friday-Saturday) 9.00am-5.00. This graduate-run workshop is free of charge, and lunches will be provided for participants. The workshop will be limited to twelve places – preference will be given to graduate students with demonstrated need for training in manuscript study and text encoding.

Please browse our project website and read over a draft syllabus before applying.

You should apply online by November 20th. Applicants will be notified whether they can be offered a place by November 26th.
