DigiPal One-Day Symposium, Monday 16th September 2013, King’s College London, Strand
Co-sponsor: Centre for Late Antique & Medieval studies, KCL
The DigiPal team at the Department of Digital Humanities (King’s College London), announces their third Symposium. We’ve built up a scholarly camaraderie over the last two years and much look forward to our annual opportunity to discuss and debate the computer-assisted study of medieval handwriting and manuscripts. Of course, we’ll need some papers. So…
Papers of 20 minutes in length are invited on any aspect of digital approaches to the study of medieval handwriting and manuscripts.
The topics below might help guide potential submissions:
• terminology for describing handwriting
• visualisation of manuscript evidence and data
• meaning and mining in palaeography
• automatic letter-form identification
• methods for dating/localising script
• crowd-sourcing in palaeography
• the practical and theoretical consequences of the use of digital images
• examples of research that would benefit from a Digital Humanities (or DigiPal) approach
The above are only serving suggestions, so please don’t feel limited to these topics. To propose a paper, please email a brief abstract (250 words max.) to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for the receipt of submissions is 10.23pm on Wednesday 3 July 2013.
