It is with great delight that the DigiPal team at the Department of Digital Humanities (King's College London) announce the draft line-up for the fifth DigiPal Symposium (see below). Building on the conversations of previous years, the focus of the Symposium will be the computer-assisted study of medieval handwriting and manuscripts. There will be a mix of pedagogy through computer gaming, Old English, Digital Humanities, ontology-based encyclopedias, codicology, Hebrew manuscripts, and it goes without saying, but we're saying it anyway... palaeography!
Registration is free and includes refreshments and sandwiches.
Very much looking forward to seeing you in September,
Stewart and Peter
