Training in digital epigraphy and papyrology and electronic publication
Date: April 20–24, 2020 (starting 11:00 Monday; finishing 16:00 Friday)
Venue: Institute of Classical Studies, University of London
Cost: £100 for one week (£50 if unwaged and no source of funding*)
Tutors: Gabriel Bodard & Laura Löser; with support from Christopher Ohge, Charlotte Tupman and Scott Vanderbilt
We invite applications for a five-day training workshop in the use of EpiDoc (http://epidoc.sf.net/), the de facto standard for encoding ancient epigraphic and papyrological editions in TEI XML for online publication and interchange. The workshop will cover the encoding of ancient texts in XML, sources of information and support on EpiDoc, and publication of editions through the EFES platform (http://github.com/EpiDoc/EFES). No technical knowledge is required, but participants are expected to be familiar with the transcription conventions for inscriptions and papyri (“Leiden”), and either Greek, Latin or other ancient languages of their epigraphic tradition.
To apply for a place on this workshop, please send a brief explanation of your motivation for seeking EpiDoc training (including any projects you will work on) to <firstname.lastname@example.org> by February 23rd, 2020.
*If you would like to request the unwaged rate, please confirm that you have sought funding from your institution to cover the fees and that none is available.
