Description

The Medieval Electronic Scholarly Alliance (MESA) serves to organize a federation of digital projects in the field of medieval studies and to develop recommendations for the social and technical infrastructure to support this federation.

The MESA workshop has three goals:

1) To present a demonstration of MESA functionality and use.

2) To present background on how federating projects into MESA works. This will involve some technical discussion and in-workshop coding examples. Workshop attendees representing digital projects in the field of medieval studies are invited to bring project metadata with them, and we will work on extracting the RDF metadata required by MESA during the workshop.

3) Practice using MESA for research purposes, again using real-life examples from workshop attendees.

Anyone currently working on a digital project in the field of medieval studies - or interested in doing so and wanting to learn more - is welcome to attend.
