DigiPal IV, King’s College London, Council Room, Nash Theatre, September 1, 2014
It is with great delight that the DigiPal team at the Department of Digital Humanities and the Centre for Late Antique & Medieval Studies (CLAMS) announce the programme for the fourth DigiPal Symposium. Building on the conversations of previous years, the focus will be the computer-assisted study of medieval handwriting and manuscripts. This year there is something of an international theme with speakers discussing Scandinavian fragments, Scottish charters, Greek and Latin inscriptions, Hebrew manuscripts of Portuguese provenance, Old English from the eleventh century, and a corpus of French documents. There will be a mix of epigraphy, numismatics, Digital Humanities, codicology, exciting technology to decipher material scratched into manuscripts and… and… ah yes, palaeography!
Registration is free and the first 80 people to register will receive a free lunch.
