CHS summer workshops for graduate students

December 8th, 2004 by Ross Scaife

The Center for Hellenic Studies invites applications to two upcoming summer seminars on Greek scholarship and electronic publication. The first seminar (led by professors Casey Dué and Mary Ebbott) will be on “Homer: Research on Homeric Poetry, Emphasizing Textual Criticism” and the second (led by professors Kent Rigsby and Joshua Sosin) will be on “Epigraphy: Greek Inscriptions, Introductions, Methods and Research.” In between the two there will be a common session on “Online Publishing Technologies and Sharing Results.” For this session,

Christopher Blackwell and several guest lecturers will work with participants on state-of-the-art technologies and methods for publishing scholarship in electronic media. Topics will include eXtensible Markup Language (XML), the Text Encoding Initiative’s standards for marking up humanistic texts in XML, the Unicode standard for representing the characters and symbols, the Classical Text Services protocol for distributing texts and fragments of them, and transforming XML documents for print and electronic publication using eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT).
