Description

This workshop will provide a space for discussing the methodology and practice of paleography in Manuscript Studies and the value of collaborative reading. Rather than a Paleography 101-style workshop, we are eager both to share our experience and to seize the opportunity to open up a larger conversation about paleography with a particular focus on the use of innovative new digital tools and online resources such as Penn in Hand, T-Pen and Shared Canvas. The workshop will consist of three sections: first, a series of ‘lightning presentations’ by group members on selected premodern manuscripts from Penn’s Special Collections, including manuscripts from the newly-acquired Schoenberg Collection; second, discussion of the paleographical challenges presented in these and other manuscripts; and finally, a general discussion section open to all attendees in which we encourage questions about the what, why, and how of paleographical study. Topics to be considered may include: how using digital resources has altered our group’s methods of accessing premodern scripts (from written texts and glosses to handwritten addenda and later annotations in early printed books); the dynamics of practicing paleography as a group; and how we can create possibilities for collaborative, interactive transcription. We encourage attendees to bring their own paleographical problems for consideration by all workshop participants.
