Workshop: Digital Editing and the Medieval Manuscript, Harvard University

October 19 - October 20

October 19 and 20, 9:30am-4:30pm

Digital Editing and the Medieval Manuscript is a 2-day workshop for graduate students which covers the fundamentals of digital editing while tackling the codicological challenges posed by medieval manuscripts. Participants will collaboratively transcribe, annotate, and encode (with TEI P5) the text and images of Houghton Lat. 159, a late medieval Book of Hours written in Latin. The workshop will result in a collaborative digital edition. Sponsored by the DSSG, the Standing Committee on Medieval Studies, and the Classics Department, with additional instruction from researchers associated with Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

Free, with a limited number of travel bursaries available; applications due by September 20.
