Description

The aim of the papers in this session is to consider what computer-based technologies might offer us in the study of medieval handwriting, whether it be on vellum or part of an architectural work. The speakers will explore tools and approaches which allow for an explicit digital representation for every observable textual or graphic feature of a text, arguing for a careful consideration of the object as a holistic that includes both textual and non-textual elements. Popular standards and tools discussed will include TEI, Omeka, the CITE architecture and DigiPal.
