Summer Workshop on Ancient Greek Graffiti

Filed under: e-seminar,EAGLE,events,training — Tom Elliott @ 17:27

From Rebecca Benefiel:

We are pleased to announce, as part of the Ancient Graffiti Project, a hands-on workshop digitizing ancient Greek graffiti, to take place August 2-7, 2015, hosted at the Center for Hellenic Studies, in Washington DC.

The Ancient Graffiti Project aims to make the first-century AD handwritten inscriptions from ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum accessible to a wide audience, both for scholarly research and for public interest. We held our first field season last summer in Herculaneum. This summer we will expand the project by focusing on digitizing the Greek graffiti of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The workshop will provide epigraphic training so that participants can study and analyze ancient Greek graffiti while contributing to multiple digital humanities initiatives including the Epigraphic Database Roma and EAGLE, the Europeana Network of Greek and Latin Epigraphy. Housing and some meals will be provided through generous support of the Center for Hellenic Studies; participants will be responsible for their own travel. We also have available a few spots for virtual participation in the workshop via live video-streaming. The deadline for applications is May 20, 2015.

Visit ancientgraffiti.wlu.edu for more information or to apply.

EpiDoc training, Lausanne, July 7

Introducing the EpiDoc Collaborative: TEI XML and tools for encoding classical source texts

Training workshop attached to the Digital Humanities annual conference in Lausanne, Switzerland
Monday, July 7, 2014

Gabriel Bodard, Charlotte Tupman (King’s College London) and Greta Franzini, Simona Stoyanova (University of Leipzig)

Information on the timing and venue of the DH 2014 workshops, and how to book can be found at the conference website.

The programme will begin with a short introduction the history and theoretical basis of EpiDoc, guidelines, schema and related tools for the encoding of epigraphic and other ancient text editions in TEI XML. We will give an overview of the structure of a traditional epigraphic edition, and show how TEI elements are mapped to the semantic distinctions and fields therein. We will continue with further discussion of the Leiden Conventions (rigorous and arbitrary sigla for encoding editorial features of transcribed text in use since 1931) and how we map TEI elements to the semantic features that they represent. The EpiDoc Guidelines and further examples will be shown. Some time will be given for practice throughout. As a self-checking mechanism, students will be shown how to transform their EpiDoc XML files into HTML resembling a conventional edition, using the EpiDoc Example XSLT.

Report on EpiDoc training, Sofia

Filed under: EpiDoc,training — Simona Stoyanova @ 15:19

Between the 3rd and 6th September 2013 we (Gabriel Bodard and Simona Stoyanova) taught an EpiDoc training workshop at the ‘St. Kliment Ohridski’ University of Sofia, Bugaria. The workshop was funded by the university’s Departments of Classics and History, and the Centre of Excellence in the Humanities “Alma Mater”, and organised by Dimitar Iliev. This was the first EpiDoc workshop held in Eastern Europe. The participants came from Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Macedonia, Romania and Serbia.

The programme of the workshop (see EpiDoc Summer School at the Digital Classicist wiki) involved a basic introduction to XML and TEI; the principles of EpiDoc markup, which are based on Leiden for the text transcription and the publication practices of epigraphers and papyrologists for descriptive, historical and supporting data. Most of the week involved hands-on experience for the participants in XML encoding and use of the Papyrological Editor tags-free interface (Leiden+), and ended with discussion of project management issues and the future of the EpiDoc community, and training possibilities in general.

We asked the participants to share their impressions of the workshop, and some of their responses are herebelow. (more…)

British School at Rome Postgraduate course in Epigraphy July 16-24 2012

Filed under: training — Gabriel Bodard @ 13:03

Posted for Abigail Graham:

British School at Rome Postgraduate course in Epigraphy July 16th-24th 2012

As you may know, the great success and popularity of the Epigraphy training course at the British School at Athens has prompted efforts to establish a similar course in Roman Epigraphy at the British School in Rome (which will run in alternate years to its sister course at the BSA). I am pleased to announce that the first Roman Epigraphy summer programme will run this July 16th-24th at the British School in Rome.

The 9 day intensive course, intended for postgraduate scholars of ancient history, archaeology, and the classics, is designed to provide training and practical experience in the use of epigraphy as a source. The course will examine the numerous contexts in which epigraphy is presented (in situ, museums, archives and published formats (including online catalogues) exploring the process of editing and publishing epigraphic materials. The course, divided into themes of a technical and cultural nature, will consist of daily epigraphic ambulatio throughout the city of Rome, museums visits, a trip to Ostia, as well as research sessions at the British School’s library and Guest lectures on various topics from scholars regarding ongoing research projects.

We are now inviting applications for the course (the deadline is January 30th 2012). Further particulars about the course can be found on our website http://www.bsr.ac.uk/staying/taught-courses/epigraphy

Queries and Applications may be addressed to Abigail.graham@warwick.ac.uk.
