 DIGITAL EDITING AND THE MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT ROLL

March 30th and 31st, 2018

University of Pennsylvania

UPenn

 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 workshop will take place March 30th and 31st, 2018 (Friday-Saturday) 9.30am-4.30pm, and will be run by Yale and Penn graduate students. It is free of charge, and lunches will be provided. The workshop will be limited to ten places, with preference given to graduate students who demonstrate need for training in manuscript study and text encoding.

An information booklet and syllabus can be found on the website – please read this document before applying, and apply online by February 5th (https://goo.gl/forms/WVF0mBkGR7zb4iRm2). Applicants will be notified whether they can be offered a place by February 15th.

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 of a fifteenth-century genealogical roll written in Latin (Emory University; Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Books Library; Ancient, Medieval, and Renaissance Eastern and Western Manuscript Collection: Box 2, Folder 1).

The workshop will run February 27th and 28th (Tuesday-Wednesday) 9.30am-4.30pm. The workshop runs on the two days preceding the Medieval Academy meeting at Emory (March 1st – 3rd).

A limited number of small need-based travel bursaries may be available for participants traveling to Atlanta. The workshop will be limited to fourteen 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 syllabus from one of our past classes before applying.
