The Institute of Classical Studies will be running a one-day workshop on digital approaches to ancient texts for postgraduate students, on Tuesday 7th July. The workshop will focus on the application of digital methods to classical textual studies, and will include an introduction to text encoding and citation. It is aimed at students interested in (but not limited to) classical literature, epigraphy and papyrology. We will be exploring the tools and methods available for encoding ancient texts, including an introduction to the EpiDoc guidelines, as well as the process of digital citation of primary texts and their metadata. No previous digital experience is necessary, but participants will need to bring a laptop with them.

Registration is free. To book a place on the workshop, please contact Valerie James (valerie.james@sas.ac.uk).
