An online event hosted by the AHRC-IRC Digital Humanities Research Network, Developing a Digital Framework for the Medieval Gaelic World, 7-9 September 2021, 1330-1700 BST (2200-0200 AEST).

This event will mark the digitisation of a sixteenth-century Gaelic manuscript, London, British Library, Harley 5280, and the newly digitised images will form the centre of an information and training event on digital resources, manuscripts and texts. Talks on such topics as metadata, IIIF, codicology and the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) will be combined with practical sessions on transcription of the manuscript; using TEI; and on the visualisation of the collation of medieval manuscripts. Contributors include Michael Hawkins (Cambridge Digital Humanities), Julian Harrison (The British Library), Anne McLaughlin (National Gallery, London), Dot Porter (Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies, University of Pennsylvania), Caoimhín Ó Dónaill (Ulster University) and Nora White (Maynooth University).

The event is open to anyone with an interest in the digital world and medieval Gaelic resources and may be of particular interest to postgraduate students and early career researchers.
