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.

Ancient Citizenship beyond the Assembly, Edinburgh, May 24

Filed under: BES,events — Gabriel Bodard @ 10:35

British Epigraphy Society Spring Meeting 2014
Saturday 24th May, University of Edinburgh
Ancient Citizenship beyond the Assembly

This workshop will examine the ways in which Greek inscriptions illustrate the range of components of ancient citizenship and civic identity, beyond participation in the principal civic institutions. Papers will examine the place in the identity, duties and virtues of a Greek citizen both of the world of civic sub-divisions and associations and of less structured social, cultural and economic interaction. A central aim will be to investigate the different ways in which Greeks conceived of the scope and limits of politics and citizenship, and the relationship between the roles of the citizen inside and outside the assembly. Was the kernel of the Greek ideas and practices of citizenship reflected in inscriptions normally Aristotle’s ‘participation in judging and ruling’, or was it often much broader?

Provisional Programme

All papers will take place in the Meadows Lecture Theatre, School of History, Classics and Archaeology, University of Edinburgh, William Robertson Wing, Old Medical School, Teviot Place, Edinburgh EH8 9AG.

10.45-11.15: coffee.

Morning session:
11.15: Benjamin Gray, Introduction: the scope of politics in Greek inscriptions
12.15: Roberta Fabiani, A new stone from Iasos: phylai, phylarchoi and the cult of Zeus Patroos

13.15: lunch.

Afternoon session:
14.30: Will Mack, Can you be the polites of more than one polis? Some contrasting views on grants of politeia and the politics of citizen identity
15.30: Polly Low, Polis and koinon at Hellenistic Erythrai

16.30: tea and posters. (more…)
