Call for Papers for Leeds International Medieval Congress, 2017...

Event: International Medieval Congress
Place: University of Leeds
Date: 3rd-6th July 2017
Needed: You ;-)

Models of Authority and DigiPal are delighted to be organising two digital methods sessions at Leeds 2017 

Session 1: "Digital Methods 1: Computer-Assisted Approaches to Palaeography"

Session 2: "Digital Methods 2: Computer-Assisted Approaches to Manuscript Studies"

Interested? Then send us an abstract! It's all pretty simple really. All you need to do is read the blurbs below; decide which session suits you best; and then send an abstract of a couple of hundred words or so (we won't count them, but try not to overdo it) to by 28th September 2016.

Looking forward to reading your abstracts, 

"Digital Methods 1: Computer-Assisted Approaches to Palaeography"

Taking palaeography and codicology as its focus, this session will consider how computer-assisted techniques might advance our understanding of the handwriting of medieval scribes.

"Digital Methods 2: Computer-Assisted Approaches to Manuscript Studies"

The large number of initiatives to digitise medieval manuscripts mean that we now have unprecedented access to medieval texts. In many ways, this explosion of knowledge can be compared to the early years of the printing press. But how might we best utilise this growing body of material? This session will explore the potential for the computer-assisted study of medieval manuscripts; discuss the intersection of manuscript studies and Digital Humanities; and share methodologies. The topics under discussion will include the encoding and transcription of medieval texts, the practical and theoretical consequences of the use of digital surrogates and the visualisation of manuscript evidence and data.
