Call for Papers: “On the Same Page: Digital Approaches to Hebrew Manuscripts”, 18-19 May 2015, King’s College London, Strand

As those following the progress of DigiPal will be aware, an increasing number of projects are opting to study their corpora with the DigiPal framework (essentially, the database and a series of web-based tools for computer-assisted palaeography). SephardiPal is one of these “Daughters of DigiPal”, and is now so grown up that she is organising her own conference. How exciting is that? It’s a two-day conference, with the promise of plenty of palaeography on offer from the invited speakers who include:

  • Malachi Beit-Arié (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
  • Edna Engel (Hebrew Palaeography Project)
  • Judith Olszowy-Schlanger (École Pratique des Hautes Études, Sorbonne)
  • Colette Sirat (Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes)
