What We See on the Screen

However you define digital humanities (DH), it often revolves around digitized objects at libraries and archives. In particular, such digital reproductions are used within digital scholarly editions.

Antwerp DH Summer School 2019: Basic Skills for Digital Archives and Editions

July 1 - July 5
UAntwerp City Campus, Prinsstraat 13
Antwerp, 2000 Belgium

In Digital Humanities, digital editing and digitisation of archival documents are rapidly gaining prominence. Our summer school offers an intensive and practice-oriented 5-day course on making digital editions and managing digital collections. In the context of Digital Archives, participants will acquire a set of basic computer skills (command line, operating systems, and networks) while setting up a IIIF-compliant image server for sharing and reusing facsimiles of literary manuscripts. In the context of Digital Editions, participants will learn to transcribe these images in TEI-compliant XML and prepare their transcriptions for the web.
