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) and Charlotte Tupman 
(KCL). There will be no charge for the teaching, but participants will 
have to arrange their own travel and accommodation.

EpiDoc (epidoc.sf.net) 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 
[log in to unmask] with a brief description of your reason for 
interest and summarising your relevant skills and background, by Friday 
March 1st, 2013.
