„Training school in codicology
Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, 29 April – 3 May 2013
Codicology, the study of manuscript books as material objects, is an important discipline within manuscript studies. Topics covered will include writing materials, formats and layout, with particular focus on presenting a typology of medieval manuscripts, illustrated by Bibles, manuscripts of the Latin classics and literary and legal manuscripts in the vernacular. A significant component of the school will be instruction in the use of TEI-conformant XML to record and analyse codicological data. There will also be a presentation of Manuscripta mediaevalia, a joint online venture of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München and the Deutsches Dokumentationszentrum für Kunstgeschichte – Bildarchiv Foto Marburg, which gives access to the manuscript collections of hundreds of libraries in Europe and the United States.
The language of instruction will be English.

Ten bursaries of € 800 each will be available to cover the costs of travel and accommodation. Only students registered at institutions in countries participating in this COST Action are eligible for bursaries (for a list of participating countries see http://www.cost.eu/domains_actions/isch/Actions/IS1005?parties).

Tydzień wcześniej w Londynie będzie miało miejsce inne szkolenie, równie interesujące. Informacje poniżej.
„EpiDoc Workshop, London, April 22-25, 2013
We invite applications for a 4-day training workshop on digital text-markup for epigraphic and papyrological editing, to be held in the Institute for Classical Studies, London. The workshop will be taught by Gabriel Bodard (KCL), James Cowey (Heidelberg), Simona Stoyanova (KCL) and Charlotte Tupman (KCL). There will be no charge for the teaching, but participants will have to arrange their own travel and accommodation.
:: EpiDoc :: is a set of guidelines for using TEI XML (tei-c.org) for the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and other ancient documentary texts. It has been used to publish digital projects including the Inscriptions of Aphrodisias and Tripolitania, the US Epigraphy Project, Vindolanda Tablets Online and Curse Tablets from Roman Britain, Pandektis (inscriptions of Macedonia and Thrace), and the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri. The workshop will introduce participants to the basics of XML and markup and give hands-on experience of tagging textual features and object description in EpiDoc as well as use of the tags-free Papyrological Editor (papyri.info/editor).
No technical skills are required to apply, but a working knowledge of Greek or Latin, epigraphy or papyrology and the Leiden Conventions will be assumed. The workshop is open to participants of all levels, from graduate students to professors or professionals.
To apply for a place on this workshop please email [ gabriel.bodard [at] kcl.ac.uk ] with a brief description of your reason for interest and summarising your relevant skills and background, by Friday March 1st, 2013.”
