DigiPal at Kalamazoo ICMS 2014
DigiPal will be represented at the 49th International Congress of Medieval Studies Kalamazoo this year, with two sessions on digital methods in manuscript studies. In these the project will be presented, but also related work by others. The emphasis of the first session is on citation and representation: how can we consistenly cite palaeographical details, particularly without a consistent terminology? What about canonical references, linked data? How do we present our arguments in consistent and stable ways? The second session focuses on 'paratext', including provenance details but also scratched glosses and how we can approach these using digital tools. You'll also see the latest developments 'behind the scenes' with the DigiPal framework and some of the other projects in which it's being used. Do come, discuss, and tell us what you think.
