EpiDoc Workshop, London, April 11-15, 2016

We invite applications for a 5-day training workshop on digital editing of
epigraphic and papyrological texts, to be held in the Institute of
Classical Studies, University of London, April 11-15, 2016. The workshop
will be taught by Gabriel Bodard (ICS), Simona Stoyanova (KCL) and Pietro
Liuzzo (Heidelberg / Hamburg). There will be no charge for the workshop,
but participants should arrange their own travel and accommodation.

EpiDoc (epidoc.sf.net) is a community of practice and guidance for using TEI
XML <http://www.tei-c.org/> for the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and
other ancient texts. It has been used to publish digital projects
including Inscriptions
of Aphrodisias <http://insaph.kcl.ac.uk/index.html> and Tripolitania
<http://inslib.kcl.ac.uk/irt2009/>, Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri
<http://papyri.info/>, Digital Corpus of Literary Papyri, and EAGLE
Europeana Project <http://www.eagle-network.eu/>. The workshop will
introduce participants to the basics of XML markup and give hands-on
experience of tagging textual features and object descriptions in TEI,
identifying and linking to external person and place authorities, and use
of the online Papyrological Editor and Perseids platforms.

No technical skills are required, but a working knowledge of Greek/Latin or
other ancient language, epigraphy or papyrology, and the Leiden Conventions
will be assumed. The workshop is open to participants of all levels, from
graduate students to professors and professionals.
