We are delighted to announce the programme for On the Same Page: Digital Approaches to Hebrew Manuscripts at King’s College London (Monday 18th May – Tuesday 19th May 2015). This two-day conference will explore the potential for the computer-assisted study of Hebrew manuscripts; discuss the intersection of Jewish Studies and Digital Humanities; and share methodologies. Amongst the topics covered will be Hebrew palaeography and codicology, the encoding and transcription of Hebrew texts, the practical and theoretical consequences of the use of digital surrogates and the visualisation of manuscript evidence and data. For the full programme and our Call for Posters, please see: http://www.digipal.eu/blog/digital-approaches/
Registration for the conference is free. As places are limited, we recommend registering at an early point to avoid disappointment. To register, please visit: https://on-the-same-page.eventbrite.com
Refreshments will be provided, but attendees should make their own arrangements for lunch.
Very much looking forward to seeing you in May,
Stewart Brookes, Debora Matos, Andrea Schatz and Peter Stokes
