About the workshop


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 workshops will result in collaborative digital editions.

The workshops will run April 28th and 29th, 2017 (Friday-Saturday) 9.30am-4.30pm. These graduate-run workshops are free of charge, and lunches will be provided for participants. A limited number of small need-based travel bursaries are available for participants traveling to New Haven. The workshops will be limited to 10 places per workshop – preference will be given to graduate students with demonstrated need for training in manuscript study and text encoding.

Apply online by March 15. Applicants will be notified whether they can be offered a place by March 28th. ‚Ä®For more information, please feel free to email the organizers at
