Description

When it comes to paleographic training, the days of barely-legible photocopies are long gone. With unprecedented access to millions of high resolution images of manuscript materials from across the chronological and geographical spectrum, it is possible to create interactive learning experiences to supplement classroom instruction or assist in self-guided learning. This roundtable will bring together a variety of current digital projects using the latest in scanning techniques, interactive tools, interoperable images, and even machine learning techniques, to explore the current state of digital approaches to paleography and envision what needs to come next. ~Ben Albritton
