Programme for DigiPal VI: The Palaeography Awakens...

Date: Monday 5th September 2016

Time: 9.30am-7pm

Venue: Room K4U.12, King's College London, Strand WC2R 2LS

Co-sponsors: Models of Authority and Centre for Late Antique & Medieval Studies

After all the frenzied speculation on Twitter, we decided it was time to put the rumours to rest and reveal the final line-up and programme for DigiPal VI next week (see below). Psyched? We are! And the good news is that it's still not too late to register if you'd like to be part of the most rock'n'roll, cutting-edgy, medieval manuscript-inflected Digital Humanities Symposium taking place at King's College London next Monday. Registering is easy: just sign-up with Eventbrite. There's no charge for registering and a free lunch is included. What more could you want? 

Well... this year, as a special treat to celebrate our sixth anniversary, we are delighted to offer some bookish prizes, generously donated by Keith Houston. The rules are simple: register for the Symposium; turn up; and you're in with a chance!

Very much looking forward to seeing you next week,

Stewart Brookes and Peter Stokes
