16 September 2011 - Digital Humanities workshop


G09, The Seminar Room – Old Whiteknights House - University of Reading

Drawing together scholars and students involved in digital and computer-assisted research, this one-day workshop intends to promote discussion, collaborations and support to digital research and teaching across the humanities.

By focusing on digital editions, this workshop will discuss the effects of new media in the humanities. It will explore the multi-level interactions of the new technologies with the humanities and the methodologies and approaches involved.

The day will open with an introductory session on how to plan and organise large projects in the Digital Humanities. It will be followed by a presentation of TEI (an encoding method for machine-readable texts, applicable to the humanities, social sciences and linguistics) and by a discussion of specific encoding methods for marking up manuscripts, transcriptions and editions of manuscript materials.

A roundtable will conclude the proceedings, presenting the work of PhD students and early career researchers who are actively engaged in the use of the Digital Humanities and computing disciplines in their research.
