Three-day workshop ‘Code and Collation: Training Textual Scholars’

The Centre for Manuscript Genetics is pleased to announce a three-day workshop “Code and Collation: Training Textual Scholars”, organised by Elli Bleeker (University of Antwerp). The event is part of the DiXiT network and is hosted by the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands, and will bring together a group of international experts from the fields of textual scholarship and computer science.

The workshop engages with the theory and practice of semi-automated collation and provides an intense training in the open source collation program CollateX. Participants will learn how to prepare source materials, how to perform semi-automated collation using CollateX, and how to inspect and modify the results; they will acquire or improve computational skills relevant to textual criticism and in particular to the production of scholarly editions.

The workshop will be held from November 2 -4 in Kaap Noord, Amsterdam. Registration is now open and free of charge. Early registration is recommended since there are limited places available. For all questions, do not hesitate to get in touch at dixitcollation[at]gmail[dot]com.
