EpiDoc Training Sessions 2009 - Rome
The EpiDoc community has been developing protocols for the publication of inscriptions, papyri, and other documentary Classical texts in TEI-compliant XML: for details see the community website at http://epidoc.sf.net.
Over the last few years there has been increasing demand for training by scholars wishing to use EpiDoc. We are delighted to be able to announce two training workshops, which will be offered in 2009. Both will be led by Dr Gabriel Bodard. These sessions will benefit scholars working on Greek or Latin documents with an interest in developing skills in the markup, encoding, and exploitation of digital editions. Competence in Greek and/or Latin, and knowledge of the Leiden Conventions will be assumed; no particular computer skills are required.
The Rome session will take place at the British School at Rome. Thanks to the generous support of the International Association of Greek and Latin Epigraphy, the British School and Terra Italia Onlus, attendance will be free.
Those interested in enrolling should apply to Dr Silvia Orlandi, firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 June 2009.
The course will run from Monday to Friday starting at 10.00 am and ending at 16.00 each day.
Participants should bring a wireless-enabled laptop. You should acquire and install a copy of Oxygen (http://www.oxygenxml.com/download_oxygenxml_editor.html) *and* either an educational licence ($48) or a 30-day trial licence (free). Don’t
worry if you don’t know how to use it!
