11-12 March 2016, Yale University

This graduate training workshop will cover topics in:

  • Medieval Manuscript Rolls: Paleography, Cataloging and Preservation
  • 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.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of digital editing while tackling the codicological challenges posed by manuscript rolls. Practical sessions will inform collective editorial decision-making: participants will undertake the work of transcription and commentary, and tag (according to TEI 5 protocols) the text and images of two medieval manuscript rolls. The workshop will result in collaborative editions of the two rolls.

The workshop will run 11-12 March, 2016 (Friday-Saturday) 9.30am-4.30pm at Yale University. The workshop is free of charge, and lunches will be provided for participants. A limited number of need-based bursaries are available to assist with travel to New Haven, and it may be possible also to arrange graduate student hosts to provide accommodation for the duration of the workshop.

This workshop will be limited to 12 places – preference will be given to graduate students with demonstrated need for training in manuscript study and text encoding.
